FEATURED SESSION: U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Rehabilitation: Recent Changes and Future Directions

PRESENTERS

Ben Harder 
Chief of Health Analysis and Managing Editor
U.S. News & World Report

Sarah Morrison, PT, MBA, MHA
CEO
Shepherd Center

SESSION DESCRIPTION

In mid-2020, U.S. News & World Report updated its methodology for evaluating inpatient rehabilitation facilities. For the first time, U.S. News used data from CMS Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Compare, the American Hospital Association annual hospital survey, and other data sources to determine the Best Hospitals for Rehabilitation. These newly incorporated data complement the expert opinions of physiatrists, which U.S. News measures through its annual national physician survey. In this session, the head of the U.S. News data analysis team will review the recent changes to his publication’s public reporting program and will discuss future directions now under consideration. A panel of discussants with expertise in physical medicine and rehabilitation will offer candid feedback to U.S. News and provide perspectives on future methodology changes that could enhance measurement of IRF quality.
