Adventist Health Lodi Memorial ranks in top 10 percent of national inpatient rehabilitation facilities


March 15, 2019 – Adventist Health Lodi Memorial is proud to announce that its Acute Physical Rehabilitation program ranked in the top 10 percent of 868 inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) that qualified to be ranked in the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR) in 2018. Lodi Memorial has been in the top 10 percent for 10 consecutive years.

“I am incredibly proud of the great care provided by our acute rehabilitation team of physicians and clinical specialists who strive for great patient outcomes,” said Daniel Wolcott, president of Adventist Health Lodi Memorial. “This ranking validates once again the sophisticated level of care and genuine compassion our patients feel when they receive care in our program.”

The rankings were determined by using UDSMR’s program evaluation model (PEM), a case mix-adjusted and severity-adjusted tool that provides facilities with a composite performance score and percentile ranking drawn from nearly three-quarters of all IRFs in the country. UDSMR’s PEM Report Card uses the indicators of efficiency and effectiveness contained in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ reporting tool for the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System (IRF PPS). The goal of the PEM Report Card is to recognize high-performing facilities for their delivery of quality patient care that is effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered.

“To recognize the efficient and effective care it provides to its patients, we are pleased to present this award to Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Acute Physical Rehabilitation,” said Troy Hillman, Manager of the Analytical Services Group at UDSMR. “Development of the PEM Report Card has served as a tool to identify and recognize high-performing facilities, to work with them to learn how they provide efficient and effective care, and to share what we learn with others to elevate the performance of all.”
