Hospitals large and small, rural and urban, are facing more challenges than ever before. Patient populations continue to age, new health crises continually emerge, treatment methods are always evolving and regulations are ever-changing. Executives must make important decisions across all service lines to enable the level of care that patients deserve on a budget that is sustainable on a long-term basis.
Among these often-competing values are the inpatient rehabilitation services that your facility provides. Patients recovering from surgery, auto injuries, stroke, and other serious injuries and conditions need the assistance of a trained therapist in order to maximize the potential for a positive outcome. The quicker patients can get moving and promote healing and a return to functioning, the better — and inpatient rehabilitation is essential.
If you’re a hospital leader who is trying to deliver cost-effective therapy services while competing with other inpatient rehabilitation facilities, a contract services provider can be an essential partner. Read on to learn more about the areas a potential contract rehabilitation partner can assess and make recommendations about to ensure the best level of care from your facility.
Evaluating inpatient rehabilitation facilities
The first step toward working with a partner to maximize the potential of your inpatient rehabilitation department is an evaluation of your current performance levels in the following areas:
- Communication, training and workflow efficiency
- Regulatory compliance
- Billing and reimbursement practices
- Program development and marketing
- Recruiting and staffing
From there, an inpatient rehabilitation consultant can make custom-tailored recommendations regarding the solutions that can work best for your facility.
