With all of the changes affecting the healthcare industry and healthcare providers, some of the most dramatic shifts have occurred in the realm of orthopedic surgery and the subsequent rehabilitation.
This is due to the shift of Medicare dollars away from fee-for-service medicine when it comes to paying for knee and hip replacements and the entry of the “bundled payment” system into the marketplace.
Under the relatively new value-based reimbursement known as the “Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement” model, CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid) is now paying for an “episode of care.”
The effects of this new system are being felt all across the healthcare spectrum.
Healthcare providers are being tasked with the responsibility to offer a comprehensive and holistic health and rehab program in the shortest possible period of time, with the objective of providing a quick return to home.
The Park Crescent Difference
At Park Crescent, we have always known what short-term rehab patients care about: they want to get better and resume a healthy lifestyle as soon as possible. They also want their rehab experience to be as comfortable and pleasant as can be.
This is as true of cardiac patients as it is for ortho patients.
Using advanced equipment and therapeutic techniques, Park Crescent provides outstanding rehabilitative and post-surgical care for a broad range of needs, including, but not limited to hip and knee replacement patients
