Why Partner with the Nation's Leader in Post-Acute Care

Encompass Health is the nation’s leader in post-acute care and the largest owner and operator of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, including more than 60 joint ventures. Our joint venture partners are primarily not-for-profit, faith-based and/or academic health systems. Each of our partners are unique and have different goals that we work together to accomplish, such as improving or expanding inpatient rehabilitation services, assisting with reducing length of stay or reducing readmissions.

When you partner with us, you have access to unparalleled experience, expertise and capabilities needed to enhance or grow inpatient rehabilitation services. Our commitment to the highest quality of care and our partners in providing that care is second to none.



Industry Leading Clinical Outcomes
Our national size is increasingly important because it allows us to drive industry-leading clinical outcomes and operational results, as well as create efficiencies through the application of best practices.



Innovative Technologies that Drive Results
tabletOur proprietary technology such as BEACON, our near real-time data management system, and ACE IT, our rehabilitation-specific electronic medical record, automates daily access to a wide variety of clinical, operational and financial metrics, leaving more time for patient care and improved results. We are also focused on using our vast amount of data to develop predictive analytics that enable us to help prevent falls and reduce readmissions by focusing on and following key patient indicators both during the patient’s stay and after discharge.




Customized Partnerships
We work with our potential partners to structure a mutually beneficial joint venture customized to meet their needs. If your hospital’s inpatient rehabilitation unit is under-utilized, or you need space to expand a core line of business, transitioning to a joint venture with Encompass Health could benefit you both operationally and financially.

Data-Driven Solutions to Reduce Costs, Improve Care

Using data from our patient electronic health record (EHR), we have developed predictive models specific to the inpatient rehabilitation setting to help prevent the risk of a readmission for our patients. Knowing that hospital falls are a leading factor of hospital readmissions, we also developed a fall prevention model. These predictive models serve to support and provide additional information to our clinicians to alert them when a patient may be at risk, so they can take preventative actions to help our patients avoid a setback and get back to what matters most.

Reducing The Risk of an Acute Transfer

React logoREACT™ is an evidence-based clinical initiative that helps our clinicians reduce the risk of a hospital readmission while a patient is in one of our rehabilitation hospitals. In partnership with Oracle Health, REACT™ was launched in 2017, and is seamlessly integrated into the clinician workflow and the EHR to identify the risk of an acute care transfer (ACT). If a patient’s risk level is elevated, their clinicians will be prompted and then can intervene and adjust the plan of care accordingly. The REACT™ dashboard displays a patient’s ACT risk levels throughout their stay in near real time. The clinical team reviews the dashboard in daily huddles and when rounding. Providing our hospital clinicians with tools such as REACT™ has helped us reduce our companywide ACT rate by nearly 10% since its implementation, but most importantly, it’s helped keep our patients from reentering the hospital and setting back their recovery.

Reducing the Risk of a Readmission After a Patient Leaves Our Hospital

The first few days after a patient leaves the controlled setting of the rehabilitation hospital are often the most crucial when it comes to preventing a hospital readmission. That is why, using data from our nationwide EHR, we developed the Readmission Prediction Model. This predictive model uses data from our patient records to calculate readmission risk. The predictive model incorporates both clinical variables and social determinants of health to determine risk. As the patient nears discharge, the care team adjusts the discharge plan according to the patient’s risk level. If the patient’s overall readmission risk level is elevated, the care team can put specific interventions and protocols in place.

Fall Prevention in Post-Acute Care

No matter what the setting of care, falls present a serious risk to patients and can cause a setback in their recovery, but not all settings are the same.

That’s why EHC partnered with Oracle Health to develop a fall risk model specific to the inpatient rehabilitation setting. Hundreds of thousands of Encompass Health electronic medical records were used to develop the model with more than 50 potential attributes that contribute to the patient’s level of fall risk while in the inpatient rehabilitation setting. These risk factors include medications, diagnoses, vitals, lab values and physical and cognitive function, to name a few. Since adding this tool to our fall prevention program there has been a downward trend in fall rates across hospitals.
