The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to improve function which will allow an individual to participate as independently and fully as possible in his/her community of choice. Reports from the treatment team, the family and the individual are helpful but can be vastly different and are not quantifiable. At ReMed, we feel that it is critical to use quantifiable outcome data which not only shows progress, but is helpful in advocating for services and proving the value of the rehabilitation and care that a person is receiving.
At ReMed we utilize three rating scales to measure the progress and outcomes of our clients, the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Index (MPAI), the Supervision Rating Scale (SRS), and the Agitated Behavior Scale (ABS). While the MPAI is the backbone of ReMed's Outcomes Measurement System, each of these scales give a comprehensive picture of the levels of disability and function of the individuals we serve in our programs. These scales also best meet the broad range of the individuals we serve in our extensive System of Comprehensive Services.
Our Programs Improve the Lives of the Individuals that we Serve
ReMed’s philosophy and approach drive clinical outcomes and long-term cost reductions – two things that we believe go hand in hand. For those clients in ReMed’s Intensive Neurorehabilitation and Neurobehavioral programs, the goal is to demonstrate progress, reflected by a decrease in scores (the higher the score, the greater the impairment). A decrease in the MPAI-4 T-score means improvement which ultimately means cost savings.
ReMed’s T-scores show that, on average, the individuals we serve are complex and high in severity and on discharge show marked improvement. Early, intensive rehabilitation with individualized therapy, greater focus on independence, and building life skills yield a successful outcome and considerable cost savings over the life of the claim.
