Health care reform has reinforced the need to maximize value by targeting interventions, eliminating preventable harms, and increasing the utilization of surveillance models to promote health status. Functional status is a key indicator of overall health. Individuals experiencing declines in functional status are more vulnerable to medical complications and resulting declines in health. A key element to increasing the awareness of functional decline and appropriately intervening is frequently evaluating and documenting a practical functional assessment among disciplines and utilizing this scale to achieve functional reconciliation.? This session will detail Johns Hopkins Medicines pragmatic approach to achieving functional reconciliation, which highlights the importance of interdisciplinary functional assessment in an era of accountable care. The speakers also will focus on the population health and the drive for clinical and financial outcomes within the hospital system through postacute care and into the ambulatory environment.
