Tracking Rehabilitative Advancement through Accountable Care (TRAAC)

Also known as: TRAAC.

What is tracking rehabilitative advancement through accountable care?

TRAAC (Tracking Rehabilitative Advancement through Accountable Care) is the service delivery model of care for rehabilitation at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. This model provides the guidelines for determining the frequency and duration of therapy services for each child, based on his or her individual needs. Frequency is determined based on: objective findings during the evaluation and treatment, the therapist’s professional judgment, and on Evidence Based Practices.

We provide care to children throughout all stages of their life by providing Episodes of Care. An episode of care is the rehabilitative services provided for a specific condition, during a set period of time, either in intervals marked by brief separations from care, or on a continuous basis. Thus, our intervention and TRAAC model for each child changes across their childhood based on their needs & the best model of intervention (TRAAC) to address their needs.
