Following short 2-3 week inpatient rehabilitation stays for acquired brain injury, rehabilitation for complex activities of daily living, behavior, cognition and other limitations to community participation is often accomplished in residential, skilled nursing, group home, outpatient and day treatment facilities, and the home and community (H&C) of the person served provided by organizations represented by the Foundation to Advance Brain Rehabilitation (FABR). FABR is a nonprofit organization with a mission to advance brain rehabilitation through scientific and strategic analysis of industry-wide data. FABR was launched by Founding Members (Learning Services, On With Life, Progressive Rehabilitation Associates, Pate Rehabilitation, ReMed, Shepherd Center) in July 2020. This symposium will describe the development and organization of FABR and the de-identified database that member organizations will use to analyze aggregate data. Research processes to evaluate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of specific postacute program types and initial outcome data will be presented.
1. Describe the mission, goals, and benefits of a consortium to analyze aggregate de-identified data from nationally representative postacute brain rehabilitation organizations.
2. Describe the development, organization, management and security of the OutcomeInfo database and the aggregate de-identified FABR dataset used for analyses.
3. Describe specific postacute brain rehabilitation program types and their outcomes as measured by the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI-4) and Supervision Rating Scale (SRS).
