Effects of Prospective Payment Financing on Rehabilitation Income.
Evans, Ron L.; And Others
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v13 n1 p27-35 Mar 1990
This study compared 187 patients discharged from a Veterans Administration hospital rehabilitation unit with 215 discharges that occurred following implementation of a prospective payment system. There were no significant differences in demographics, self-care ability, or readmissions. Length of stay and referrals for home health care decreased, but discharges to nursing homes increased.
