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.
