Financial Implications of a Hospital Early Mobility Program
Bognar K, et al. | ESICM | 2015

Significant evidence has shown that early mobility programs improve clinical outcomes for patients in critical care conditions. However, the lack of evidence associated with the financial benefit of early mobility programs has served as a barrier to program implementation. This study evaluates the financial benefits associated with the clinical outcomes of early mobility programs in the ICU environment. The study concludes that early mobility programs can generate annual savings up to $1,250,000 for a capitated delivery system, $925,000 for a Hospital, or $325,000 for a private payer.
