Exploring Patient Outcomes After Participation in an Inpatient Occupation-Based Group: A Longitudinal Observational Cohort Study
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Positive patient outcomes of goal achievement, occupational performance, satisfaction, and self-efficacy were seen at discharge, with evidence of sustainability over time. This could be a resource alternative for addressing skill retraining because people with different diagnoses and in different age groups benefited equally. What This Article Adds: Occupation-based group programs have encouraging application in general inpatient rehabilitation for addressing patient outcomes.PMID:35943844 | DOI:10.5014/ajot.2022.049241 (Source: The American Journal of Occupational Therapy)

Bringing Acute-Level Care to the Patient: Key Steps for Hospital at Home
Shutterstock.com As the hospital at home concept and care model gets more attention nationally, hospitalists often provide the leadership, clinical expertise, and labor needed to get these programs off the ground. Although the model’s regulatory and reimbursement foundations remain uncertain, and many established programs remain small, two decades of positive outcomes—demonstrating improved safety, shorter lengths of stay, reduced readmissions, lower costs and mortality rates, and, especially, higher patient satisfaction—would seem to demand finding a way to make it work. “Given the clinical outcomes and patient ...
