Predicting Our Patient Outcomes
How well an individual recovers is influenced by many factors that are unique to each person. The NCH Brookdale Rehabilitation Hospital is a member of the Uniform Data Systems for medical rehabilitation, which maintains the world's largest database for medical rehabilitation outcomes. With information from initial assessments, we can map a patient’s current abilities and compare them to what the national average of recovery is for any condition we treat. We can also determine how many days it will take, on average, to make the predicted gains.
An indicator of success of any rehabilitation program is the percentage of patients that successfully discharge home (to a community setting).
