The FIM (Functional Independence Measure) System is a functional status assessment system designed for use by clinicians who care for individuals with disabilities. It can be used as part of an outcomes management program for skilled nursing facilities, subacute facilities, long-term care hospitals, Veterans Administration programs, international rehabilitation hospitals, and other related venues of care. The system enables providers and programs to document the severity of patient disability and the results of medical rehabilitation, and establishes a common measure for the comparison of rehabilitation outcomes. It provides an established means of collecting rehabilitation data in a consistent manner, and allows clinicians to follow changes in the functional status of their patients from the start of rehabilitative care through discharge and follow-up. The system can also be used by researchers to assess the affects of assistive technology use on functional status. The system includes coding forms and software. The software includes pre-admission and referral source tracking; a patient satisfaction module; FIM profile reports; customizable fields; import/export and HL7 interfacing; and real-time reports, including specific marketing reports. COMPATIBILITY: For use on an IBM compatible personal computers (PC). SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Pentium P4 processor; video card capable of supporting 1024 x 768 resolution; 256 megabytes (MB) RAM (Windows XP) or 128 MB RAM (all other operating systems); Internet Explorer 6.0 or later; Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or later; Internet T1 or fractional T1 DSL Internet connection.
The LIFEware System is an outpatient outcomes tracking and reporting system that documents functional outcomes achieved across a wide variety of outpatient settings, including outpatient rehabilitation clinics, physical therapy practices, standalone private practice sites or clinics, adult day service centers, cardiac rehab centers, pulmonary rehab centers, pain centers, wound care centers, and other settings. The system provides a method of evaluating outcomes for individual patients, groups of patients, and outpatient programs. It also offers real-time reporting, provides regional and national benchmarking, and helps fulfill accreditation requirements for outpatient settings. A subscription to the system includes the following features and benefits: standard quarterly facility reports, including standard reports with VAS (Visual Analog Scale) and standard customized report templates; advanced quarterly reports, including summary, detail, trend, and demographic reports; administrative reports, including subscriber assessment counts, error reports, subscriber billing information, and export case/assessment records; case/assessment reports, including case profiles, case narratives, case histories, case follow-up reports, and assessment summary reports; a two-hour phone consultation for initial technical training; technical support; and report interpretation support.
The UDS-PRO System is a comprehensive tool that combines patient assessment, outcomes management, and reimbursement functinality for use by rehabilitation facilities. The system combines the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Patient Assessment Instrument (IRF-PAI), case-mix group (CMG) assignment, and data transmission to both the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDS). The system includes both Medicare and non-Medicare requirements, allowing the facility to evaluate care and manage resources with a single instrument. Subscribers have access to a database of patient records for approximately 70 percent of all inpatient rehabilitation facilities. Other features include desktop/network and Internet software versions; optional HL7 interfacing; IRVEN and other vendor data conversions for a historical database; projected CMG, LOS, and facility-adjusted FPP; case-level IRF compliance status; FIM Track module for admission and discharge rating assistance; Mini-FIM assessment tool, a 7-item preadmission screening tool with admission and denial tracking; user-defined custom fields; dynamic export for custom reporting; and a patient satisfaction module.
WEEFIM II SYSTEM
The WeeFIM II System is an assessment evaluation test designed to enable credentialed clinicians across the United States and around the world to measure and document functional performance in infants (0-3 years old), children, and adolescents with either acquired or congenital disabilities in a consistent manner. The instrument is a reliable outcomes measurement instrument that can be applied uniformly across inpatient, outpatient, and community-based settings to track clinical, managerial, and performance improvement efforts and initiatives. The system is a benchmarked outcomes management system that provides a method of evaluating outcomes for patients, groups of patients (population-based), and overall medical rehabilitation/habilitation programs. Features include on-line data submission that eliminates the need to send data by courier or FTP; recalibrated age-based norms to provide comparisons to children without disability below 7 years; measurement of resource utilization in units of service; an enhanced report writer that allows subscribers to use templates to create on-site reports that facilitate outcomes analysis and program functions; and a robust and flexible database program that allows a facility to expand its internal tracking of patients and systems for both inpatient and outpatient modules Data tracks medical issues, demographics, patient satisfaction, and payer information. Custom fields expand the system’s capabilities. Real-time facility reports are available immediately after data input snd a task scheduler schedules assessments and facilitates task assignments. Dynamic export feature allows subscribers to export data to spreadsheet applications and to create reports for their own needs Expanded admission classes
