While giving her own team of therapists high marks for patient care, Kathy Russell also credits the whole team at Pine Run, Doylestown, PA, with the success the facility's rehabilitation program. Pine Run is a continuing retirement community with 298 independent apartments and 127 skilled beds, 50 of which are short-term rehab. Russell attributes Aegis' training and equipment as keys to her staff's success. All therapists are trained in three Core Programs -- Dementia Management, Complex Disease Management, and Falls and Balance. The Aegis Information Management System allows the therapist to enter a patient's demographics, RUG levels, and billing information. This allows Aegis and Pine Run to monitor service delivery and treatment outcomes. Russell predicts shorter length of stay, getting patients back in the home as soon as possible, more efficient delivery service models, and evidence-based outcomes as the future of skilled nursing facility rehab.
