Leadership and Vision

Leadership Academy definitely helped me grow and become a leader for my team, my facility and for Infinity Rehab.  It has given me the tools to continue to grow my leadership skills beyond the classroom and to help others grow as leaders, clinicians and innovators.  I have learned about our values as individuals and teams and how they tie in with not only the company vision but our own visions for various projects. The development of a vision helps guide us, excite us and engage us to reach the vision’s goal.  I learned about leadership techniques and communication styles and … 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

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

Infinity Rehab Hires Patrick Hennessy as Quality Implementation Specialist

Patrick Hennessy, PT, MPT, NCS, will oversee the further implementation of quality initiatives designed to enhance patient care, measure outcomes data and continue Infinity Rehab’s trajectory as a leader of post-acute therapy services. Beginning in 2013, Infinity Rehab laid the groundwork in preparation of post-acute care transitioning from a volume-based industry to one that rewards positive patient outcomes. Their efforts to redesign the delivery of therapy services began with research into evidence-based measurement of functional outcomes, treatment interventions, and professional development. This initial phase established the foundation for truly patient-centered care and meeting the goals of health care reform, which … Continue reading
