Abstract : The purpose of this research is to advance understanding of how to improve the care and outcomes for persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), numbering over 200,000 in the past decade in US forces. The project vision is to improve TBI functional classification, health care processes, and rehabilitation outcomes by establishing and activating a self-sustaining system with a new level of integration of health science informatics-based web tools and human organization, to provide a platform and process for innovative solutions that can overcome barriers and meet identified needs in patients with TBI. The first set of objectives is focused on configuration and initial deployment and use of a health science-based web technology platform for representation of the WHO International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in a computable form, with mapping of the computable ICF to varied user interfaces to create a cross-systems tool set for TBI rehabilitation models and functional health optimization. The second set of objectives is focused on development of organizational knowledge that would guide decisions and actions for the expanded deployment and use of the envisioned computable ICF framework and ICFIntegrator tool set.
