Skilled Nursing Wheelchair Physiatry

Skilled nursing facilities are becoming increasingly more important in the sphere of rehabilitative care. More patients are now receiving rehab care in skilled nursing facilities than in hospitals and inpatient facilities, putting the staff at skilled nursing facilities under increasing pressure to provide higher quality patient care in a shorter amount of time.

We recognize that many skilled nursing facilities are faced with greater demands for specialized staff to handle complex rehabilitation cases, and lower reimbursement rates to provide optimal care. That’s where Radial Health comes in – to place high-quality rehabilitation providers where they are needed most. Our providers help skilled nursing facilities provide expert-level care without hiring expensive additional full-time staff.

Radial providers create individualized patient care plans, in collaboration with the patient’s entire care team, including the patient’s primary care and specialty care physicians. We base our care plans on the best evidence available. We assess therapies, diagnostic tests, and clinical decision rules for their value, while balancing necessity and effectiveness.

We work in partnership with care teams to improve outcomes of care while reducing the unnecessary use of resources. Our goal is to provide optimal patient care through a cohesive cost-effective care plan.

What We Do

Radial Health providers manage rehabilitation care for patients from diagnosis to discharge, allowing your staff to focus on their work more effectively.

Diagnose

We work with the medical team to diagnose the clinical and functional conditions that will impact recovery and return to most optimal level of independence and health.

Treat

Our providers create individualized care plans that guide their teams in providing exceptional patient care. This coordinated, physician-led rehabilitation approach includes weekly team meetings to discuss the patient’s functional status, barriers to improvement/discharge, expected length of stay, and more. They track and document each patient’s progress toward goals and identify any barrier to improvement.

Collaborate

Radial Health providers collaborate with caregivers, skilled nursing staff, administrators, and other providers to ensure comprehensive, outstanding care for each patient, as well as efficient use of resources for the facility. Together with the care team, our providers will set discharge goals for each patient, manage the patient’s stay, and facilitate transitions to the next care setting in a timely manner.
