What's up RESTORE Blog Readers?
My name is Jim Marlowe and I'm one of the Clinical Success Directors at RESTORE. I can also proudly say, I'm a COTA/L.
I worked in Admissions & Marketing at two different Skilled Nursing Facilities, prior to joining the RESTORE team. The admission front is extremely competitive, because every building is looking for something to differentiate themselves. When choosing a rehab facility, two things top the list and RESTORE can help with both.
1. How strong is their therapy team?
RESTORE offers fun and competitive skill building activities therapists can adapt to every patient.
Each RESTORE game highlights which skills that game addresses.
2. What is the patient experience like?
RESTORE games feature many activities for residents to enjoy, while working on skills, which will get them back to their highest level of function.
Our Jackpot t-shirt program is a fan favorite with residents. Hit 3 Wilds in our Jackpot game and win a free t-shirt, sent directly to your facility.
Facilities love to share those smiling faces on social media. *Social media is a beautiful thing*
Answering those two questions is important, but facilities must also differentiate themselves to hospitals and physicians. RESTORE Home Player and Data Tracking can help.
Home Player and Data Tracking:
Facilities set up patients with RESTORE upon their discharge. Patients can continue playing at home, for free, up to 45 days post discharge.
Each resident's data is available to all RESTORE users in a facility and can be saved & printed.
Therapists track their patient's participation and progress. If they notice a decline in the patient's function or participation, they follow up to determine the cause.
Therapists ensure home health is alerted to any changes or possibly bring the patient back to the facility for care, without a trip to the emergency room. Cutting down on rehospitalizations? That is music to everyone's ears!
Use these admission and marketing tools to place your facility in the spotlight! Questions or ideas? Leave a comment or send me an email. Jim@restoreskills.com.
