Community Use of Physical and Occupational Therapy After Stroke and Risk of Hospital Readmission

Many Medicare recipients who are discharged from the hospital after suffering from a stroke are readmitted. Some patients who have suffered a stroke and are discharged from the hospital receive occupational or physical therapy in the home or some other outpatient setting.

This article describes a cohort analysis of Medicare claims from 2010 to 2013 to examine whether the receipt of therapy (including the number and timing of therapy visits) decreased the risk of readmission for stroke patients who had been discharged.
