Our Team-Based Approach
Our therapists consider the patient to be the most important member of the care team. To initiate treatment and comply with insurance requirements, all patients must have a referral/prescription from their physician. The initial evaluation is then performed by the therapist to obtain objective measurements and report that information to both the patient and the physician. The therapist and patient then develop a treatment plan based on the patient's goals. Regular communication occurs with the referring physicians regarding their patient's progress, along with other professionals within the medical community to provide the best team approach.
Standards of Care
All rehabilitative care delivered at Beth Israel Deaconess HealthCare-Chelsea is guided by comprehensive standards of care that are written by a panel of experts. These detailed standards which are regularly updated according to the most current clinical practices, cover a wide range of patient populations and conditions.
