People who love physical therapy.
The Vantage Story
Vantage Clinical Solutions (our parent brand) started with a pen, a pad of paper, and two physical therapists chatting over lunch back in 2005. Disenchanted with their own workload, priorities, and lack of freedom to create and serve, they created Vantage as the answer to their own frustrations with physical therapy. Over the past 10 years, Vantage has created a family of brands, like BuildPT dedicated to preserving, growing, and strengthening what we consider to be the best profession on earth.
The BuildPT Mission
BuildPT was created to provide marketing services specifically designed to meet the needs of the private practice physical therapist. From website development and hosting to providing content marketing solutions for physical therapy clinics across the country, our goal is to help PTs better market themselves as well as their profession, mindful that an educated and empowered consumer is more likely to make physical therapy a part of his or her healthcare regimen.
Tannus Quatre, PT, MBA
Tannus founded Vantage and, hence, BuildPT by tapping into his unique mix of clinical and business experience. A licensed physical therapist and certified athletic trainer, Tannus also earned an MBA from Duke University with an emphasis on marketing and finance. His clinical experience spans a variety of healthcare settings including sports medicine, outpatient rehabilitation, acute care physical therapy, inpatient care, and home health. If you’re a frequent reader of the APTA PPS magazine Impact, you may recognize Tannus’s byline as he regularly contributes on topics related to business, marketing, client services, and branding.
