Course Description

Inpatient rehabilitation facilities began collecting data on a functional outcome measure in October 2016. Skilled nursing facilities will begin collecting this data for the same functional outcome measure in October 2018. Home health agencies will be next. As a result, data finally has the potential to be compared across the post-acute care setting. It will be important for providers to understand the measure itself, but also insure their processes for collecting data are reliable and accurate.
