Functional Improvement Quality Measures

Multiple metrics are used to determine patient improvement throughout their inpatient stay. Patients are scored on their admission and again at discharge in the categories of Self-care and Mobility, which includes multiple skills and abilities as shown in the graphics below. The improvements are measured by the change in score for both and can be compared with similar rehabilitation facilities. Higher scores are better.
