The Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) Program began in 1987 to improve care and outcomes for individuals with TBI. There are currently 16 TBIMS centers funded.
What are the Traumatic Brain Injury
Model System Centers?
The TBI Model System centers provide a multidisciplinary system of rehabilitation care, including emergency medical, acute medical, and post-acute services to improve care and outcomes for people with TBI. In addition to providing direct services, these centers play a pivotal role in building the national capacity for high-quality treatment and research serving persons with TBI, their families, and the communities in which they reside.
What is the Traumatic Brain Injury Model System
The Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems National Database is a prospective, longitudinal multi-center study which examines the course of recovery and outcomes following the delivery of a coordinated system of acute neurotrauma and inpatient rehabilitation. The Database includes large scale follow-up to 30 years post-injury. As of March 2021, the database contained information on 18,557 persons with TBI.
