Medically Complex Patients on the Rise: Is Your Rehab Program Ready?

Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services
Published:  Jul 10, 2019
Type:  White Paper
Length:  3 pages

Rehab programs will experience a major influx of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.

This leaves rehab leaders with one significant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.

In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients:
• Clinical staff
• Tech innovation
• Patient and family member experience
