Increasing Patient Cencus is Key To Turning Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit Around
The impact of changing federal regulations over the past five years has been hard-felt by this 70+-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit (IRU).
Rehab leaders face a volume and pace of regulatory changes that leave them little time to
plan for how they will adjust their business and continue to maintain their margins while being in compliance. Determining how best to alter business practices to support changing regulations often requires asking some hard questions:
• How is your IRU leadership preparing for/ responding to regulatory and practice
• What new programs, practices or ideas have you implemented to maintain census?
• How long does it take to receive an admission decision from your IRU?
