Cost Benefits of Contract Therapy

In the modern health care space, it’s more difficult than ever for hospital administrators and executives to deliver the exceptional care patients deserve on a cost-effective basis. One area that leadership can particularly struggle in is providing efficient yet effective physical therapy and rehabilitative services for patients in the recovery stage.

The personnel needs, regulatory and billing compliance requirements and performance management concerns can create significant administrative hurdles for hospitals of any size, but particularly small- or medium-sized facilities. Hospitals looking to reduce budgets and trim operating expenses often question the necessity of providing inpatient physical therapy when it may seem more efficient to refer patients to an off-site facility.

Do hospitals really need to provide onsite physical therapy?

It’s important to understand the benefits that quality physical therapy and rehab provides to patients during the immediate recovery process after undergoing surgery or suffering a debilitating injury. Receiving physical therapy during a hospital stay has the potential to improve patient experience, shorten recovery time and lower the chance of readmission.

Hospitals concerned about the costs associated with providing this critical treatment at their facility often turn to contract physical therapy services with a dedicated partner.
