Quality Measures for Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities #3241
PRESENTERS: Anne Deutsch, RN, PhD; Mel Ingber, PhD; Laurie Coots, MS; Poonam Pardasaney, ScD, DPT; Allen Heinemann, PhD, FACRM
The Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Quality Reporting Program began data collection in 2012. Currently, there are 7 quality measures finalized in the IRF QRP, including several IRF-acquired infections, and a post IRF discharge readmission measure. This symposium will describe the process of developing quality measures and describe: 1) analyses involved in developing the post IRF discharge readmission quality measure and 2) research examining the development of quality measures using patient-reported data.
Can Measures of Team Functioning (TF) be Useful in Quality and Quality Improvement? #3201
PRESENTERS: Dale C. Strasser, MD; Jay M. Uomoto, PhD; Andrea Backscheider Burridge, PhD; Linda Resnik, PT, PhD; Alan Stevens, PhD
The lack of rehabilitation specific measures hampers QI in the field. In this symposium we examine team functioning (TF) measures as process indicators, building on our experience of modeling and studying TF in stroke rehabilitation. A recent exploratory analysis of data from a national clinical trial found that TF measures tracked key patient outcomes consistent with a theoretical model of team effectiveness. These findings will be critiqued followed by an interactive discussion on the potential utility of TF measures and future research.
Identifying Biomarkers for Concussion Through Assessment of Vision, Balance, and Vestibular Function #3206
PRESENTERS: Drew Davis, MD; Katherine K. Weise, OD, MBA, FAAO; Jennifer Braswell Christy, PT, PhD
The diagnosis of concussion can be challenging and elusive at times due to the significant reliance on history and patient report, with objective exam findings sometimes absent. For individuals who have a prolonged recovery or develop post-concussive syndrome, it is often difficult to distinguish symptoms related to pre-existing or co-morbid conditions from those attributable to concussion. Vision, balance, and vestibular function are frequently impacted by concussion and measurement of these systems shows promise for providing an objective, non-invasive means of identifying biomarkers for the diagnosis of concussion while providing targets for rehabilitation.
Post-Hospital Brain Injury Rehabilitation Outcomes: Report From the National Outcome Info Database #3019
PRESENTERS: James F. Malec, PhD, ABPP-Cn, Rp; Thomas F. Murphy, CEO; Mary Pat Murphy MSN, CRRN, CBIST; Vicki Eicher MSW; Irwin M. Altman, PhD, MBA
OutcomeInfo is a web-based database system, developed through NIH Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding, for monitoring progress and outcomes in post-inpatient programs primarily with the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI-4). Analyses of outcomes and methods will be presented for intensive post-inpatient brain injury (BI) residential and outpatient/community-based rehabilitation programs in contrast to supportive living programs for almost 3000 individuals living with BI throughout the U.S. represented in the OutcomeInfo database. A multidisciplinary panel will describe (1) the OutcomeInfo database system, (2) key features of major program types, and (3) outcomes and participant characteristics for each program type.
