  1. Stroke rehabilitation : Clinical predictors of resource utilization.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Annual Assembly of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Chicago, IL, USA, 1996/10/13.


    To identify predictors of rehabilitation hospital resource utilization for patients with stroke, using demographic, medical, and functional information available on admission.


    Statistical analysis of data prospectively collected from stroke rehabilitation patients.


    Large, urban, academic freestanding rehabilitation facility.


    A total of 945 stroke patients consecutively admitted for acute inpatient rehabilitation.

    Main Outcome Measures 

    Resource utilization was measured by rehabilitation length of stay (LOS) and mean hospital charge per day (CPD).


    Independent variables were organized into categories derived from four consecutive phases of clinical assessment : (1) patient referral information, (2) acute hospital record review and patient history, (3) physical examination, and (4) functional assessment.

    Predictors for LOS and CPD were identified separately using four stepwise multiple linear regression analyses starting with variables from the first category and adding new category data for each subsequent analysis.


    Severe neurologic impairment, as measured by Rasch-converted NIH stroke scale and lower Rasch-converted motor measure of the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) instrument predicted longer LOS (F2.824=231.9, p<. 001). (...)
