What is contract therapy?

1 minute, 43 seconds

Whether it's delivering physical therapy to a person recovering from an auto injury, occupational therapy in the aftermath of a stroke or post-surgical rehabilitation after a major operation, hospitals are expected to deliver a wide range of therapy services to patients under their care. While there are challenges to managing therapy programs, it is a critical part of patient care. Delivering effective physical therapy and rehabilitation can help improve patient satisfaction and lower the likelihood of costly readmissions. Contract therapy can help hospitals overcome the administrative challenges associated with overseeing an in-house therapy unit. Dedicated contract therapy providers are organizations that can provide outsourced services that fit the scale and budget of any sized hospital.

Why do hospitals use contract therapy?

Therapy services have unique administrative and logistical needs compared to other hospital service lines. Hospital leaders, especially in smaller and more remotely located facilities, are often challenged to properly manage these departments. By working with a contract therapy service, these hospitals can leverage the following:

  • Industry expertise
  • Access to recruiting resources
  • Established systems of work
  • Streamlined documentation and billing systems
  • Strategic guidance for new service offerings

Through finding the right contract therapy provider, hospitals can provide a better patient experience while streamlining costs and maximizing revenue streams.
