Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Henderson Recognized as One of the Top 10 Percent of Inpatient Rehabilitations Facilities in the United States

Published on Tue, Mar 1, 2016 (3:24 p.m.)

Henderson, Nevada, 3/1/2016 – Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Henderson is pleased to announce that it ranked in the top 10 percent of 782 inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) that qualified to be ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR) in 2015.

“Healthsouth Henderson’s Leadership truly appreciates the work and commitment of all staff in establishing an outstanding team and clinical program. Our Clinical results and outcomes for our Acute Rehabilitation Hospital are stellar. We are extremely proud to announce that Healthsouth Henderson has been recognized as a Center of Excellence for Rehab Services by UDSMR. The Community has a choice and they have a choice to access specialized, state-of-the-art rehabilitation services that our hospital has to offer”. Sam Billig, CEO.

The rankings were determined by using UDSMR’s program evaluation model (PEM), a case mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from nearly three-quarters of all IRFs in the country. UDSMR’s PEM Report Card uses the indicators of efficiency and effectiveness contained in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ reporting tool for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System (IRF PPS). The goal of the PEM Report Card is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered.

“To recognize the efficient and effective care it provides to its patients, we are pleased to present this award to Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Henderson,” said Troy Hillman, Manager of the Analytical Services Group at UDSMR. “As the creator and caretaker of the nation’s largest database of rehabilitation outcomes, and with over 20 years of experience and data, UDSMR continues working with the industry to establish best practices. Development of the PEM Report Card has served as a tool to identify and recognize high-performing facilities, to work with them to learn how they provide efficient and effective care, and to share what we learn with others to elevate the performance of all. We look forward to working with Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Henderson and the other top performing facilities across the country that rank in the top 10 percent to improve care in all inpatient rehabilitation facilities.”

This is the tenth year that UDSMR has issued these awards. The PEM Report Card was developed as part of a proactive solution to the Institute of Medicine’s 2006 recommendation to Congress that every Medicare provider be reimbursed on a pay-for-performance basis. The data used for this report was based on 12 months of 2015 data, drawn from both Medicare and non-Medicare patients. The results were weighted and combined into a single composite score, and each facility was assigned a percentile rank from 0 to 100 relative to the other qualifying IRF subscribers in UDSMR’s database. The resulting distribution of the facility PEM scores for UDSMR’s IRF subscribers exhibited a normal distribution.
