Rapid Recovery Program

The Fast Track Home

Our Program

After a joint replacement surgery, Allied Services Rapid Recovery can reduce your hospital stay and promote a safe transition home. Close coordination between the physician and Allied Services Home Health creates consistent clinical pathways and documentation for patients and their families. ”Fast Track” Programs like Allied Services Rapid Recovery are associated with greater patient satisfaction, fewer readmissions to hospital and better pain management. Prior to surgery, your surgeon will review the Rapid Recovery Program with you. A clinician will complete a pre-operative home safety assessment and create an initial plan to ensure a safe transition home after your surgery.

The goals of Rapid Recovery are to maximize the patients’ medical, functional, and emotional health. Skilled clinicians and caregivers work as a team, under the direction of the patient’s surgeon, to ensure the goals are achieved. Continuous evaluation of patient experience, outcomes, and costs will be documented and reviewed with the physician.

Here’s How RAPID RECOVERY Works

  1. Pre-operative interventions including education, weight management, and exercise.
  2. Coordinate with the inpatient facility to ensure smooth transition to home care, including medication hand-offs.
  3. Nursing and prescribed therapy with physician oversight.
  4. Transition to next level of care.
