Abstract

The development of new models of understanding the disabling process, the changing system of financing health care in the United States, and the increasing incidence of disability is challenging rehabilitation to define new models of care delivery. Current models of comprehensive medical rehabilitation include multidisciplinary therapy in inpatient, outpatient, home and community settings. Managed care and the development of capitated funding systems for health care financing will challenge rehabilitation to prevent disability in a population. This article proposes a model system for comprehensive rehabilitation in managed care: the Community Integration Rehabilitation Model. This system advocates the development of a continuum of services including a strong community-based rehabilitation system, that is, a shift in emphasis to expanding opportunities for independent and productive community living as well as management of disease and impairment for individuals with disabilities, and the forging of partnerships between institution-based rehabilitation and its community. Comprehensive rehabilitation is redefined as a continuum of disability prevention and treatment across the lifespan of a population.
