The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is major participant in the Knowledge Program©, sponsored by Cleveland Clinic's Neurological Institute. In addition, discreet and searchable outcomes data is collected on patients in our acute hospitals and inpatient rehabilitation hospitals through a branching logic platform which is seamlessly integrated into the medical record. Since 2011, active collaborations with Boston University’s Rehabilitation Outcomes Center and the University of Vermont Department of Rehabilitation and Movement Science have promoted refinement and academic study of several rehabilitation outcomes tools. The “6-click” Inpatient Short Forms derived from Boston University’s Activity Measure for Post Acute Care are the subject of ongoing study that encompasses more than 200,000 patient encounters.
