Evaluation of a pilot program for rheumatic disability in an urban community

, : Evaluation of a pilot program for rheumatic disability in an urban community. Arthritis & Rheumatism 24(7): 937-943

A program for the systematic detection and management of arthritis disability was developed for an urban population [Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA]. A survey identified 601 persons with rheumatic disability in a population of 9500-10,550. Seventy-eight persons were evaluated and given recommendations. An ombudsman assisted the clients in obtaining health services and coordinated care. An evaluation 6-8 mo. later showed increased utilization of and referrals to relevant services, but on the whole little improvement in functional capacity was noted. The small numbers do not permit more definite conclusions.
