Bundled Care Program
Post-op Total Hip, Knee and Shoulder Arthoplasty
Cooper Physiotherapy Clinic has agreements with several local hospitals to provide post-op care under the Bundled Care Program ie. hospital funded physiotherapy. This includes patients that have had HIP, KNEE, or SHOULDER REPLACEMENT surgeries in the following hospitals:
- Ottawa Hospital (General, Civic and Riverside Campuses
- Queensway Carleton Hospital
- Kemptville Hospital
- Cornwall Hospital
- Brockville Hospital
Funding for this program is provided through direct payment by the hospital. There is no specific number of visits or length of the post op program but is based on the following:
- The number, frequency and duration of visits offered during each post-operative rehabilitation must be necessary and reasonable for the treatment of the post-surgical condition, as determined by the treating physiotherapists using his/her professional and clinical judgment of the patient’s individual need and evidence-based best practices.
- Patients will be discharged once the therapeutic objectives identified in the treatment plan have been achieved, or when any reasonably equivalent gains could be achieved through exercise or similar program, or when no further gains are likely to be achieved from continuing the physiotherapy clinic services.
The patient is to let the Care Coordinator at the hospital know should they choose to proceed with the Bundled Care program at the Cooper Physiotherapy Clinic, and the coordinator will send us the requisition.
Patients can not start physiotherapy in the hospital and then switch to the bundled care program in clinic halfway.
If there are any further questions about this program the patient is encouraged to speak to their treating Physiotherapist.
