Packer Perspective: How U.S. Rehab Can Help You Show Your Worth

Published in Complex Rehab on July 08, 2020

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." - John F. Kennedy

I love this quote, and it was delivered during a time that was not easy by any means. It also came from a great American who lost his life working to help this great nation. We are going through a lot of turmoil with COVID-19 and our industry, so we are making do with new methods of treatment and healthcare.

Something we have seen help our cause is the growth of telehealth programs, and we will see those continue with time. The one key element to this is making sure the care received is just as good, if not better, than before. It is important that you are not seeing lower outcomes and are also maintaining the service levels expected to keep you and the end users healthy. I read an article that had the statement, “40% of Americans use high deductible health care.” This is a strong statement for our industry, as that can mean a high cost to get what you need.

That being said, this statement brought out two positive elements:

  1. Good care is a must
  2. People want value 

This means that with high-quality healthcare comes high-quality outcomes.

U.S. Rehab has had a group using the FMA for a few years now, and we see that high quality ATPs with quality products keep the healthcare cost down by lowering patient falls, hospital remittances, and wound frequency. It is with this quality care that we are able to show data collection and outcomes with high statistical probability. This data, as well as some articles that are being published, show that the research is sound.

It is this type of effort that we have been working on at U.S. Rehab with our members for over four years, so we are giving back to our clients. This shows a great focus on giving back to our communities and country. We at U.S. Rehab are here to help you be the best you can be and make the patient populations better in the process. If you are wanting to have a high-quality process and use patient outcomes as a driving force in your business, please give us a call or email. The FMA is one of the top tools in the industry, and U.S. Rehab is the only place you are able to get this tool for data collection and report-gathering purposes. We are ready, willing, and able to help you show your worth in the healthcare continuum of today with high-quality processes and highly effective programs to give you the edge needed in today’s market.

Please contact us with any issues you may have, or if you need advice or help, as we are here to help you in any way we can to make you successful.
