Network FAQ

What is the Collaborative Approach Therapy Network Model?

The CATS Network model is to support clinicians and share resources in order to better serve our clients, kiddos, families and communities. We strive to ensure that CATS is a worthwhile investment for clinicians, with high value at reasonable costs. Within the network we value quality services for clients above all. We also embody a growth mindset, candour, efficiency, and fostering a collaborative community in and outside of the practice.

I am just starting out, can I afford to join CATS?

Yes! We have structured our fees to support new and established practices. By keeping our initial buy in fee low, we strive to make CATS accessible to motivated OT entrepreneurs. Your monthly fees are a percentage of revenue, which means that while you are small your fee is small. We are then both motivated to help you build your OT business, if that’s the direction you want to go.   CATS sets its fees so that it works equally well for the person just starting or the large facility adding OT.   

What do I get for my fees?

You will have access to CATS software which includes a plethora of done-for-you clinic resources, parent handouts, CATS College training videos, report templates, quick-score for common assessments, legal forms and more. The CATS software is a great resource for new clinic owners and is invaluable when building and training your team. In addition you will have access to Jane Software, access to marketing materials including social media posts, our Facebook group and more. By joining the Network you are receiving efficiency, knowledge, and a crew of like minded OTs.
