Pulmonary rehabilitation services provided in hospital-based and free standing facilities will also be surveyed. The results of this survey will enable the AARC to 1 determine if the activities included in this survey are widely performed, and 2 identify activities not included in this survey that are performed with sufficient frequency to be included in the final draft of the URM. With the information provided, the AARC will be able to assign statistically validated time standards for these procedures. Who should participate?

Pulmonary rehabilitation services provided in hospital-based and free standing facilities will also be surveyed. The results of this survey will enable the AARC to 1 determine if the activities included in this survey are widely performed, and 2 identify activities not included in this survey that are performed with sufficient frequency to be included in the final draft of the URM.
With the information provided, the AARC will be able to assign statistically validated time standards for these procedures. Who should participate? Managers of respiratory therapy services in hospitals are invited to submit information about the services they provide to patients in their faculties.
Managers of respiratory services provided in SNFs, and rehabilitation facilities are also invited to contribute to this project.
Those who manage pulmonary rehabilitation services in either hospitals or free-standing outpatient facilities are also invited to participate. What are you being asked to do?

If you do not perform the activity essentially as described, click on the button that allows you to skip the activity and move to the next. For each patient population adult, pediatric and neonatal in which it is performed you will be asked if you have determined a time standard for this activity in this facility.
Report that time standard in minutes. If you have no time standard for an activity, just indicate that and move on. Do not report times for activities you do not perform! When all sections of each survey are completed, you will have an opportunity to describe any activities performed in your facility but not included in the survey.
You may add them in the empty spaces at the end of each of the seven 7 areas of procedures. The survey s may be completed in phases and at times determined by you.
You may log in and out as your schedule permits using your personal access information. Sincere appreciation from the AARC and the respiratory therapy community for your participation. This survey will remain open through June 30,
Uniform Reporting Manual
Time standards for procedures and activities based on relative value units RVUs are the foundation of all accurate productivity systems that evaluate the efficiency of delivering respiratory therapy services. Now and in the future, hospital administrators will continue to focus on reducing operational cost in respiratory care. Productivity management is essential to insure adequate numbers of qualified respiratory therapists are assigned based on patient need, and justify staffing levels when faced with challenges to reduce expenses. The information in these 4 documents can help managers develop or refine time standards for the services they provide. The AARC is providing these complimentary resources to encourage managers who have not developed time standards for their services to do so.
