Online database for the Assessment and Comparative Evaluation of Rehabilitation Outcomes.
In: 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, October 25-28 2001, Turkey.
The changing face of rehabilitation structures and
practices has meant that measurement of outcomes of
rehabilitation has become an absolute necessity. Unfortunately
the level of agreement over which measures to use is poor as a
result of lack of access to measures and lack of knowledge
concerning methods of analysis and interpretation of results.
In this paper we report on efforts by the authors to address
these issues through the establishment of an online database
available over a variety of web devices for the comparative
evaluation of rehabilitation outcomes. We discuss the
background to the problem, the development and use of an
initial system and the future directions of the project.
