This session will review a process established between UCLA Health and the California Rehabilitation Institute (ARU) to expedite referrals and transfers to ARU, shorten acute length of stay, and minimize readmissions to the acute care facility. The session will describe the process and also share metrics for various steps along the way, including acute LOS, readmission rate, and estimated expenses saved on the acute care side. A monthly steering committee, comprised of UCLA and Cal Rehab professionals, continues to refine the process, recommend improvements, as well as review all readmissions to determine if any could have been prevented. This program is a model for how acute care and post-acute facilities could partner for optimal patient and financial outcomes.
- Identify inpatient rehab referral barriers to post-acute settings
- Identify an efficient pre-admission process to facilitate post-acute admissions and optimize the patient experience
- Discuss strategies to reduce readmission
