Rush University Medical Center’s Multidisciplinary Model Reaches Aging Patient Population
JANUARY 10 - BOCA RATON, FL – MX.com today introduced a new Pelvic Floor and Abdominal Health Program Solution designed to help healthcare administrators add new hospital service lines to reach aging and post-menopausal patients. Pioneered by Rush University Medical Center, the program integrates treatment for complex pelvic health issues. Since its inception in 2004, it has grown by 900 percent and demand continues to surge.
The solution features a virtual clinic model and best practices to create a guided, comprehensive care unit encompassing gynecology, urology, gastroenterology and related clinical specialties. Rush’s model integrates services provided by physicians, physical therapists, behavioral practitioners to offer patients the latest surgical and non-interventional treatment options. The program addresses the following concerns:
• A growing need for treatment as baby boomers age. In 2010, 28.1 million U.S. women were treated for pelvic disorders; medical experts project it will be 44 million by 2050.
• Pelvic symptoms are challenging to diagnose.
• Cohesive approach leads to prevention and early intervention.
• Patients often suffer from multiple conditions across medical specialties.
• Collaboration improves patient experience, therapeutic opportunities and quality of care.
“Within the next decade, roughly 50 million women will reach post-reproductive age, increasing the need for pelvic health treatment,” said MX.com CEO Joseph Davis. “This solution gives forward-thinking hospital administrators a blueprint for an integrated service line that’s likely to increase patient volume and expand revenue channels.”
