We have been producing outcomes research related to several populations in inpatient rehabilitation since 2007, including joint replacement and orthopedic trauma. Our goal in this work is to understand which patient features, functional status and therapeutic elements produce the most favorable outcomes for patients. Outcomes of interest include discharge to home, functional independence and mobility. Our work has been presented in various platforms including scientific conferences, system wide hospital administration meetings and state congress to support the value of these rehabilitation services.
