Rehabilitation Providers

Goal setting is at the heart of rehabilitation and there is a wide literature examining the components of goal setting and how these can be applied across different settings and clinical providers. Best-practice goal setting can be elusive in clinical practice, due to differing approaches and terminology, and the time it takes to do it thoroughly.

Goal Manager is designed to automates and streamlines key goal setting processes in healthcare rehabilitation, from the completion of a comprehensive functional assessment, to setting goals using Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) and SMART objectives i.e., the individual steps taken towards achieving those goals, detailed in a way that is specific and comments on their measurement, achievability, relevance, and time constraints.

Whether you are a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, psychologist, speech and language therapist, or a large multidisciplinary service, there are universal components to best practice goal-setting which are outlined in Figure 1, with a clinical example presented in Figure 2. Goal Manager is designed to reduce administrative demands at every step of this process. All of Goal Managers components can be used individually as well as together, providing flexibility for rehabilitation providers to integrate Goal Manager into their practice according to the individual needs of the service.
