Dr. Idema and her team established a program to enhance the spine outpatient process for patients. The “PreHab” program connects spine surgical candidates with their healthcare team weeks before the scheduled surgery. ” Essentially, our healthcare teams go out to the patients’ houses well in advance to work on proper techniques that will be used immediately following surgery,” explains Dr. Idema. Therapists perform full-home assessments, identifying medical equipment needs. They also collaborate with patients and their families to address discharge needs and potential sub-acute rehabilitation facility placements.”By addressing these often overlooked areas for continuity of care, we are able to deliver a more comprehensive patient experience,” says Dr. Idema. “Patients are getting more involved in their patient care experience and are better informed on what they want from providers.”
