Medical City Plano cited for care that is effective, efficient, timely, and patient-centered
Medical City Plano ranks in the top 10 percent of 868-inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) the IRF database of Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSmr) in 2018.
"We are committed to the care and improvement of human life in every action, every patient, every time," said Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Plano. "This recognition further exemplifies our excellence always commitment to patients who turn to us for rehabilitation care."
The rankings were determined by using UDSmr's 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).
"We are pleased to present this award to Medical City Plano," 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."
The data used for this report was based on 12 months of 2018 data, drawn from both Medicare and non-Medicare patients. The results were weighted and combined into a single composite score, and each facility was assigned a percentile rank from 0 to 100 relative to the other qualifying IRF subscribers in UDSmr's database.
