Abstract

This is the 10th annual report describing patients discharged from comprehensive medical rehabilitation programs in the United States that subscribe to the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation. The analysis included 298,973 complete records of first admission cases discharged alive from 676 facilities in 1999. The data show that patients receiving care in comprehensive rehabilitation programs show measurable functional improvement and that a high percentage of patients are discharged to community-based settings.
