Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This study is the first examining the relationship between cocalibrated functional score and subsequent PAC utilization for Medicare beneficiaries. Examining functional scores across PAC settings for patients with stroke, lower extremity joint replacement, and hip/femur fracture allows OTs to estimate clients' needs for postacute services.
