"Rehabilitation needs to happen continuously, not just when the therapist or doctor is watching, so we developed a tool to extend the expert guidance of physical therapists and make it more engaging and more effective for patients," said Dr. Ravi Komatireddy, co-inventor of the technology, visiting fellow with West Health Institute, and clinical scholar with Scripps Translational Science Institute.

BALTIMORE -- Johns Hopkins Medicine announced Jan. 11 the results of a study showing that the up-front costs of providing early physical therapy for intensive care patients are outweighed by the financial savings generated by earlier discharges from the ICU and shorter hospital stays overall.
An article describing the findings, "ICU Early Physical Rehabilitation Programs: Financial Modeling of Cost Savings," was published online ahead of print in the March issue of Critical Care Medicine.
"The evidence is growing that providing early physical and occupational therapy for intensive care patients -- even when they are on life support -- leads to better outcomes. Patients are stronger and more able to care for themselves when they are discharged," said Dale M. Needham, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine and critical care specialist at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and senior author of the study. Patients are stronger and more able to care for themselves when they are discharged," said Dale M. Needham, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine and critical care specialist at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and senior author of the study.

"However, our study shows that a relatively low investment up front can produce a significant overall reduction in the cost of hospital care for these patients," Needham said.
...
However, by 2009, the length of stay in the MICU had decreased an average of 23 percent, down from six-and-a-half days to five days, while the time spent by those same patients as they transitioned to less-intensive hospital units fell 18 percent. Using their financial model, the authors estimated a net cost saving for the hospital of about $818,000 per year, even after factoring in the up-front costs.
The researchers then analyzed the potential impact of early rehabilitation services in 24 different scenarios, accounting for variations in the number of ICU admissions, cost savings per day and reductions in length of stay.
"We were very conservative in creating the financial model to avoid overstating the potential net cost savings," said Robert Lord, AB, lead author of the study.
...
Needham said their financial model can serve as a resource for hospitals throughout the United States to estimate their own net cost impact for providing early physical rehabilitation to ICU patients.
