National Rehabilitation Reporting System
The National Rehabilitation Reporting System (NRS) contains client data collected from participating adult inpatient rehabilitation facilities and programs across Canada. These include specialized facilities as well as hospital rehabilitation units, programs and designated rehabilitation beds. The minimum data set contains clinical data on functional status based on the 18-item FIM® instrument and additional cognitive elements.
Facilities collect client data on admission and discharge from the inpatient rehabilitation program. They send the data directly to us on an ongoing basis for inclusion in comparative reports. There is an option to collect additional information in a follow-up assessment conducted three to six months after a client completes his or her rehabilitation stay. Collecting this information provides an opportunity to assess the sustainability of functional outcomes gained during rehabilitation.
Metadata is information about data. It helps users understand and interpret data from a specific source.
