Description Healthcare reform has reinforced the need to transform service models to focus on value by emphasizing efficiency and efficacy. This need for system re-design, culture change and the call for innovation presents an opportunity to overcome the long-standing challenges faced implementing an interdisciplinary mobility program as a standard of care. In this educational session, we will build on the 2014 CSM discussion and will examine opportunities, strategies and tactics to position, implement, and evaluate interdisciplinary mobility initiatives in the hospital setting.
Objectives • Review the evidence supporting mobility in the acute care setting • Identify the value opportunities for mobility to enhance outcomes or reduce costs along the healthcare continuum. • Demonstrate how Hospitals can successfully integrate many types of data to inform their decision making. • Examine specific strategies to leverage organization Healthcare Reform initiatives to drive Interdisciplinary mobility • Discuss strategies to initiate, conduct, and evaluate an interdisciplinary mobility model • Discuss practical strategies to measure implementation success
ESTABLISHING A CULTURE OF MOBILITY IN THE HOSPITAL SETTING Highlights from CSM 2014 • Evidence Supporting Activity • Value and Waste • The Systematic Use of Data • 10 Critical Components of Creating a Culture of Mobility in the Hospital Setting
Our next chapter… • Updates on Systematic Use of Data • Functional Reconciliation • Interdisciplinary Mobility Care Path • Implementing at scale
Why is promoting activity and mobility in the hospital important? Most hospitalized patients currently spend most of their time in bed. J Am Geriatr Soc. 2009; 57(9):1660-5 Lower levels of physical fitness are directly associated with all-cause mortality and increased complications. JAMA. 1989;262(17):2395-2401; JAMA. 2008;300:1685–1690 Patient centered: Affects patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living and basic needs, which can affect a patient’s dignity. Our current health-care environment is emphasizing patient centered outcomes (i.e. Hospital Readmissions) 2 Hoyer et al., 2013
Why is promoting activity and mobility important? Body Systems: cardiovascular (orthostatic hypotension, thrombus) psychosocial (depression) musculoskeletal (atrophy and contractures) respiratory (hypostatic pneumonia) integumentary (pressure ulcers) urinary elimination (infection and dehydration) metabolic (fluid and electrolyte imbalance) bowel elimination (constipation and dehydration) 3
The Value Equation “Achieving high value for patients must become the overarching goal of health care delivery, with value defined as the health outcomes achieved perdollar spent.”– Michael Porter, PhD Harvard Business School Value = Outcome Cost Porter ME, Teisberg EO. Redefining health care: creating value-based competition on results. Boston: Harvard Business School Press, 2006.
Examples of Waste • Failure of care delivery • poor execution • lack of widespread adoption of best practice resulting in patient injuries, worse clinical outcomes, and higher costs. (e.g. hospital acquired complications) • Failures of care coordination • care that is disjointed (e.g. handoffs, discharge plans) • unnecessary hospital readmissions, avoidable complications, and declines in functional status, especially for the chronically ill. • Overtreatment • care that is rooted in outmoded habits, that is driven by providers' preferences • unnecessary tests or diagnostic procedures to guard against liability • use of higher-priced services that have negligible or no health benefits over less-expensive alternatives "Health Policy Brief: Reducing Waste in Health Care," Health Affairs, December 13, 2012. http://www.healthaffairs.org/healthpolicybriefs/
The Healthcare Challenge Value Solutions: • Improve Outcomes • Decrease Cost The bigwinsare when we can do both together. In other words…..

What does the mean to us • We used data from a validated tool to give us information about patients mobility • We used that information to drive CULTURE change in our organization • Therapist Utilization • Patient Mobility • Discharge Planning
What is Cleveland Clinic’s 6 Clicks? Short form of the AM-PAC (Activity Measure for Post Acute Care) Patient Reported Outcome Tool 25 years in development Validated across all levels of care 240 items – 3 domains Computer Adapted Test Can be shortened, and answered by surrogates

And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. —Genesis 11:4–9
Functional Reconciliation …the comparison of a patient’s functional ability prior to hospitalization with their current status. To occur at all transitions in level of care within institutions, and between institutions and out-patient / community resources. similar to medication reconciliation Elliot, D, et al.

System Approach Value Opportunities • Targeted intervention • Protocol development • Discharge planning • Acquired complication risk • Resource utilization • Patient functional trending • Predictive modeling • Reconciliation across setting
Solving the Outcome Measurement Dilemma: • Need many items or many condition-specific instruments to cover all the relevant functional outcomes across a broad range of patients • The traditional administration of extensive instruments is burdensome to patient and clinician • Instruments lack the comprehensiveness needed to track patient progress across settings throughout an episode of care.
