1 Central LHIN Health Service Needs Assessment and Gap Analysis: Appendix O: Analysis on Hospital Rehab Services November, 2008

2 Canadian Hospital Rehab Statistics and Highlights Nationally, the vast majority of clients were successful in their rehabilitation programs; 89% of them returned to their pre-admission living setting following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation, with 84% returning to a private house or apartment. 91% of clients were determined to have sufficiently met their service goals upon discharge. Almost half (47%) of all clients received rehabilitation relating to orthopaedic conditions. An additional 16% received rehabilitation services following a stroke. Greater gain, on average, in Total Function Score is seen for clients in major multiple trauma (29.6) and burn (22.6) Rehabilitation Client Groups (RCGs) Lesser gain, on average, in Total Function Score is seen for clients in pulmonary (11.3) and arthritis (11.6) RCGs. Source: Canadian Institute for Health information, Inpatient Rehabilitation in Canada, (Ottawa: CIHI, 2008).

3 Canadian Rehab Statistics and Highlights Clients in the brain dysfunction, spinal cord injury and burn RCGs, among others, were much more likely to be admitted to a specialty facility than to a general facility, whereas clients in the orthopaedic, debility and arthritis RCGs, among others, were much more likely to be admitted to a general facility. Clients admitted with spinal cord dysfunction had the longest median length of stay (43 days), while clients admitted with orthopaedic conditions had the shortest median length of stay (12 days). Among clients admitted for stroke, the median length of stay was 34 days, with 25% of clients being discharged within 18 days and 75% of clients being discharged within 51 days. Overall, 84% of all clients that lived at home prior to admission returned home upon discharge. Ninety-two percent of clients admitted for major multiple trauma and 89% for orthopaedic conditions returned home, compared with 79% for medically complex, 78% for brain dysfunction and 75% for stroke. Source: Canadian Institute for Health information, Inpatient Rehabilitation in Canada, (Ottawa: CIHI, 2008).

4 Central LHIN Hospital Rehab Highlights Rehab admits totaled 4449 cases for Central LHIN patients in 2006/07. The top 10 rehab services by RCG volume grouping cumulatively account for greater than 70% of all rehab cases (72.8%). The majority of all rehab cases (52%) are to do with Orthopaedic conditions related to Hip and Knee. This is compared to 47% nationally. Stroke related rehab accounts for a total of 8.5% of all Central LHIN cases, compared to 16% nationally. We are unable to answer at this time why stroke numbers significantly lower than the national experience However, this is a potential issue and can be identified as a Gap. It was noted that St John s does not accept serious stroke cases. Overall, 85.3% of all clients (compared to 84% nationally) that lived at home prior to admission returned home upon discharge. An additional 8% met their service goals and were returned to another unit or facility (i.e. not returned to the community) Age grouping that use rehab services used more predominately by females with spikes in rehab utilization by ages greater than 65. We believe that this may be related to Osteoporosis.

5 Central LHIN Patient Age Groups Using Hospital Rehab Services Rehab services are used more predominately by females with spikes in Rehab utilization by ages greater than 65. Greater likelihood of Osteoporosis may account for Females. The greatest volumes (12.7% of all cases) are in the aged category. Age Group Total % Female % Male % 0.1% % 0.3% % 0.9% % 0.7% % 2.9% % 5.8% % 9.4% % 12.7% % 4.3% Total % 37.2%

6 Rehab Hospitals Used by Central LHIN Patients Central LHIN residents predominantly used 3 hospitals for rehab services, St. John s, York Central and Southlake. Most Central LHIN residents sought rehab treatments within the Central LHIN. Complex cases are most likely to receive treatment outside of the Central LHIN. The top 10 hospitals for rehab services are listed below.

7 Central LHIN Rehab Patient Groups by RCG Codes About RCG Codes: Within the National Rehabilitation Reporting System (NRS), a client is categorized into one of 17 health condition groups, known as Rehabilitation Client Groups (RCGs). The RCG selected for a particular client is based on the condition that best describes the primary reason for the client s admission to the inpatient rehabilitation unit or facility, such as stroke or limb amputation. Some RCGs are further sub-divided in order to facilitate more specific analysis of groups that contain large numbers of rehabilitation clients. The limb amputation RCG, for example, is further subdivided into groups that denote which limb was amputated and at what level the amputation occurred. The top 10 Rehab services by RCG cumulatively account for greater than 70% of all rehab cases (72.8%). The majority of all rehab cases are to do with Orthopaedic conditions related to Hip and Knee. Stroke related rehab accounts for a total of 8.5% of all Central LHIN cases.

9 Central LHIN Rehab Patient Groups by DHC Codes About DHC Codes: DHC is a description of the Diagnostic Health Condition. This attribute is similar to the Most Responsible Diagnosis in Inpatient Discharges and Main Problem in Ambulatory Visits. It is defined as the diagnosis describing, the most significant condition which causes the client s rehabilitation stay in hospital. Note: Unlike Inpatient Discharges and Ambulatory Visits, which use ICD10-CA; this attribute uses the Diagnostic Health Conditions (DHC) coding system, which is unique to NRS. Over 35% of all DHC codes are related to Musculoskeletal System Arthritic And Connective Tissue Disorders. Musculoskeletal, Injuries Related to Trauma and Cerebral Circulation account for over 50% of all Central LHIN rehab admits.

11 Central LHIN Rehab Patient Length of Stay The average LOS is 18.6 Days for all Central LHIN rehab cases. Spinal or Brain related rehab episodes account for the longest average length of stay, while clients admitted with orthopaedic conditions had the shortest average length of stay. The Top 10 LOS table below illustrates that orthopaedic and stroke rehab dominate the use of rehab services and available beds. The top 10 listed below account for 60% of Total Length of Stay for all Rehab discharges. Hip and Knee replacements alone account for 20% of the Total LOS. Complex cases may have a direct impact on ALC, because of the average LOS.

A further 8% met their service goals and were released/transferred to another facility. Note: 6.2 % of service goals are NOT met. An additional 0.5% withdraws, die during rehab treatment, or move.
