Abstract: 

People with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) often have cognitive, physical and neurobehavioral impairments that limit independence and increase the risk of unsafe events in the home. Home and community-based service providers often have limited training in the broad needs of persons with chronic TBI-related impairments. Behavioral informatics has the potential to optimize diagnostics and tailor personalized intervention programs through monitoring; data translation; severity-based, just-in-time, treatment recommendations; and regular, actionable feedback. We will present innovative, scalable, and portable behavioral informatics approaches to delivering safety, health and activity-related diagnostics and intervention programs for people with TBI-related disabilities.
