Electronic Rehabilitation Prescription (eRP) and Integrated Rehabilitation Management and Assessment (IRMA)

Dr. Alexis Joannides

The efficacy and continuity of patient care is dependent upon the accuracy, detail and accessibility of clinical information, this is epitomised in neurological patients. The eRP has been designed for use across all trauma patients including those with neurological and non-neurological trauma. It is a composite document made up of multiple forms capturing discrete categories of clinical information.

The rehabilitation form portfolio has been separated into logical divisions in order to facilitate ongoing assessment and revision, whilst maintaining a transparent audit trail. It consists of 6 purpose-built data capture forms and 9 standardised outcome measures. The content of the entire dataset has been developed in line with the latest national guidelines.

The recent launch of IRMA takes eRP into the wider rehabilitation context.
