Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience

Download this white paper to learn how small practices can earn Chronic Care Management revenue while providing the complex patient better care, the clinician knowing that they are providing higher quality care, and CMS reducing its overall costs and rewarding the practice financially.
Dr. Scott Boden, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Director of the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center, has a deep understanding of what it takes to run a successful medical practice that provides optimal patient care in today’s complex health care environment. A lauded physician and researcher–he discovered a gene that triggers human bone growth–Dr.Boden gained this insight while treating thousands of patients each year.
Creating a highly efficient, consistent, and cost-effective way to evaluate and treat patients is, according to Dr. Boden, central to success. He also places a high priority on gathering comprehensive data on patient outcomes, while easing the burden of medical documentation.
