Using 6 Clicks to Improve Mobility
At the hospital, patients often think they will stay in bed, rest and heal. However, after all that rest, strength and mobility can decrease and patients often aren’t as ready to go home as they thought. Five years ago, when therapy leaders at Cleveland Clinic had the chance to collect basic patient data, they felt a functional measure would be most impactful to their work. But there was nothing appropriate on the market, so they created it themselves. They worked with Boston University to produce inpatient short forms for the Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care or AM-PAC. AM-PAC, and the 6 Clicks training materials, are an example of how our Adeo platform can help reduce barriers to bring products to market.
