Implementing a culture of activity and mobility for patients while in the acute care hospital or inpatient rehabilitation
Michael Friedman, PT, MBA &
Erik Hoyer, MD Introduce AMP-Hospital
The Activity & Mobility Promotion program firmly establishes the concept that a systematic approach is beneficial in combating the harms of immobility in our hospitals. Throughout our hospital we have adopted structured quality improvement processes to promote a culture of activity and mobility.
Activity and mobility programs can reduce length of stay, decrease readmissions, and improve patient outcomes. Such programs are an excellent method to drive value “by bending the cost curve” by improving patient outcomes at a lower cost to the hospital.
Johns Hopkins Medicine’s Activity and Mobility Promotion Toolkit supports the implementation of AMP within your hospital.
Participate in our convenient AMP online courses for adult and pediatric ICU settings.
AMP experts provide guidance & training to meet your institution’s needs.
For 130 years, Johns Hopkins Hospital has led the way in both biomedical discovery and health care, establishing the standard by which others follow and build upon.
