Cited for care that is effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered
Of 868 inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) nationwide, Mercy Health Muskegon qualified to be ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSmr) in 2018.
“This recognition truly signifies the type of care all of our patients receive on the acute rehab unit. This multidisciplinary team does an outstanding job of always putting the patients and their families at the center of their care. They work hard to provide the right care at the right time, which results in outcomes that exceed national benchmarking. We are very proud of this recognition,” said Lisa Rose, senior director for orthopedics, neurosurgery and rehabilitation.
The rankings were determined by using UDSmr’s program evaluation model (PEM), a case mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from nearly three-quarters of all IRFs in the country.
UDSmr’s PEM Report Card uses the indicators of efficiency and effectiveness contained in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ reporting tool for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System (IRF PPS). The data used for this report was based on 12 months of 2018 data, drawn from both Medicare and non-Medicare patients.
Congratulations to the team from Mercy Health Muskegon’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit.
