Rehabilitation Technology Service Delivery, 1: A Practical Guide.
RESNA: Association for the Advancement of Rehabilitation Technology, Washington, DC.
The guide consists of six author contributed chapters and is intended to aid in the development of new rehabilitation technology service delivery programs as well as increasing the effectiveness of existing programs. The first chapter, by Roger Smith, describes and evaluates seven models of service delivery in rehabilitation technology. Chapter 2, by Phil Mundy, is concerned with marketing, including management and organization, the needs analysis market study, products, the marketing plan, and ongoing market evaluation. The next chapter, by Douglas Hobson and Carl Gregory Shaw, considers program development and implementation based on the seven models described earlier. John Leslie addresses the application of such business practices as fiscal management and control to rehabilitation technology services in the fourth chapter. The fifth chapter, by Samuel McFarland and Kenneth Reeb, Jr., discusses funding sources and strategies, including estimating financial needs, finding start-up funding sources, and generating revenue. In the next chapter, Hugh O'Neill provides a rehabilitation technology case study to illustrate business practices in seating service delivery. A final chapter, by Alexandra Enders, lists resources including acronyms, addresses of authors, marketing references, funding sources for rehabilitation technology, government agencies, national organizations, and statistical information resources.
