However, it’s important to understand the key role that delivering inpatient therapy services can play in ensuring successful patient outcomes.
What’s more, properly managed and administered therapy departments can be easily overlooked sources of revenue. To help maximize the performance of therapy programs, many hospitals are turning to dedicated partners that specialize in working with hospitals. To help you decide if this course of action is right for your facility, it can be highly beneficial to understand the specific elements that a therapy partner can offer.
