Take action now to ask your Member of Congress to support repeal of the therapy cap by supporting and signing onto the Medicare Access to Rehabilitation Services Act of 2017 (S. 253/H.R. 807)! On February 8, 2017, as part of NASL’s 2017 Winter Legislative & Regulatory Conference, NASL members met with their Members of Congress and asked them to support the bicameral legislation, the Medicare Access to Rehabilitation Services Act of 2017 (S. 253/H.R. 807).  This important legislation repeals the “therapy cap” which is a harmful financial restriction on outpatient rehabilitation services needed by Medicare beneficiaries to recuperate and improve … Continue reading

Medication Management and Therapy Treatment Plans

Do you or your therapy team members consistently work on medication management as a part of your treatment plan? As a treating OT, I would occasionally include medication management as a goal in my plan of care. More often than not, I would assume that someone else was providing the proper education prior to discharging home. I now know this was a dangerous assumption. The research shows that our patient population needs more help in managing this critical task. What is the cost of medication nonadherence in healthcare? The numbers are staggering: Adverse drug events cause over 700,000 emergency department … Continue reading

A Bold Vision for a Bold Future

Our vision statement contains some very bold and daring words. We have crafted these words to paint a picture of the future and the actions we are taking to turn this future into a reality. Many in our industry would not have the courage to put the pen to paper and formally commit to these ambitious goals. These goals go to the core of who we are as an organization. This past holiday, my mother was coming to visit, however, she developed pneumonia right before she was to arrive and was hospitalized. This change of events was very sudden and … Continue reading

What’s on the Horizon for 2017?

“Predictions are hard, especially about the future.” Niels Bohr Nobel Laureate in Physics   Some would call it foolish to try to predict how the Trump administration and the 115th Congress will shape health care in 2017, but here it goes anyway! I think it is safe to assume that value-based payment is likely to survive, but it may look different in terms of structure. The HHS secretary-nominee, Dr. Tom Price, is not a fan of mandatory initiatives, such as the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) bundled payment program which began in April last year. The CMS Innovation Center … Continue reading

At the End of Each Workday, I Go Home Feeling Accomplished and Blessed

work-love

As a new occupational therapist graduate, I was so excited to begin my career working for a “big name” rehab company, one that almost everyone in the therapy world had heard of. I was looking forward to having a corporate support system and strong clinical support. Unfortunately, I very quickly realized that this was not at all what I had gotten myself into. Instead, I was being sent back and forth between multiple buildings completing evaluations and supervisory visits with no further mention of the “mentor” I had once been promised. A few years later, I was introduced to Infinity … Continue reading

Why the Infinity Rehab Vision Inspires Me

vision-spingboard-header

  I love our new vision statement!  In just two sentences, the vision captures what we are about, where we are headed, and how we will get there.  I’d like to focus on a few aspects of the vision that are particularly meaningful to me. First, unparalleled quality and value.  We have been talking about quality in healthcare for as long as I’ve been in practice, but seldom have I seen the fortitude, commitment, and razor-sharp focus that is required to achieve true quality in outcomes.  Here at Infinity, we have that determination.  Together, we have laid a foundation for … Continue reading
