In this methodological note on applying the ICF in rehabilitation, we introduce functioning information as fundamental for the “learning health system” and the continuous improvement of the health system’s response to people’s functioning needs by means of the provision of rehabilitation. A learning health system for rehabilitation operates at the micro-level of the individual patient, meso-level of operational management, and the macro-level of policy that guides rehabilitation programming. All three levels rely on the capacity of the informational system of the health system for standardized documentation and coding of functioning information, and the development of national rehabilitation quality management systems. This methodological note describes how functioning information is used for the continuous improvement of functioning outcomes in a learning health system across these three levels.


KEY WORDS: Rehabilitation - Learning - Health information systems.
