The Economic Impact of Improved Clinical Outcomes with Increased Mobility in the NeuroIntensive Care Unit
Hester JM, et al. | 2015

Early mobility in a neurocritical ICU has shown positive clinical outcomes.  This study examines the sustainability and financial outcomes associated with an early mobility program.  The authors from UF Health-Shands Hospital, were able to maintain improvements in ICU and hospital length of stay (LOS), which yielded a 13% reduction in cost of patient care.  The authors have estimated a combined savings of $12.4 million dollars over a two year time period.  They conclude that early mobility programs are able to be implemented and sustained with positive  clinical and financial outcomes.
