Work with Hospitals to Provide Better Care for Patients who have Joint Replacement Surgery

Work with Hospitals to Provide Better Care for Patients who have Joint Replacement Surgery is proudly presented to you by National Association for Home Care & Hospice. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Discharging patients to their homes after elective joint replacement surgery (EJRS) has been shown to provide efficient clinical outcomes, as well as cost savings. In 2012, the Joint Replacement Center and Montefiore Home Care initiated a collaboration to increase the number of patients discharged home for rehab services. The goal of the collaboration was to decrease the length of hospital stay, improve pre-operative teaching, and reduce utilization of sub-acute services.

Objectives:

  • Discuss the need to implement specialized programs
  • Describe how to develop a program
  • Illustrate a collaborative approach in primary care and hospital settings

Faculty: Angela Schonberg, MPT, Assistant Director Business Development, Montefiore Home Care, Bronx, NY; Wojciech Rymarowicz, MPT, Director of Physical Therapist, Montefiore Home Care, Bronx, NY; Amy Ehrlich, MD, Medical Director, Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY
