The Biomedical Research and Informatics Living Laboratory for Innovative Advances of New Technologies in Community Mobility Rehabilitation (BRILLIANT-Rehab) program aims to provide evidenced-based research to improve rehabilitation for individuals with Acquired Brain Injury.

Bringing together researchers from both McGill and the University of Montreal, the vision of the BRILLIANT Rehab program is to optimize mobility of persons with acquired brain injury (ABI) across the lifespan. The program will develop and deploy a comprehensive clinical and community based mobility monitoring system to evaluate the factors that result in poor mobility, and develop personalized mobility interventions optimized for specific patient sub-groups. These innovations will be used by front-line clinicians to deliver cost-effective care. It’s known as the right intervention to the right person at the right time and accounts for long-term functional potential and meaningful participation in the community.

PCHI Research

Our research is embedded in a learning health care community (LHCC) model.

Patients/caregivers bring the perspective as experts from their unique experience and knowledge gained through living with/caring for a condition or illness, as well as their experiences with treatments and the health care system.

Patient and caregiver engagement is the foundation of a learning health system. The PCHI lab’s mission is to answer questions that matter to patients and caregivers.

“Data! data! data! I can’t make bricks without clay.” ― Arthur Conan Doyle

A digital infrastructure is a key component of the LHCC model.

The digital infrastructure facilitates bidirectional communication between community stakeholders and healthcare providers and systems.

Relationships with key stakeholders (patients, caregivers, and community agencies) move the learning health system forward. 

The learning health community model moves towards a state where key stakeholders in the community and healthcare system share resources, data, and goals.

PCHI Telehealth Research

We run several research projects in a number of telehealth domains.

Telehealth is a collection of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to enhance and access public health and health care services remotely. Telehealth encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tools to deliver virtual rehabilitation, medical, health, and education services. Telehealth is not a specific service, but a set of tools to enhance health care and education delivery.

The PCHI lab is conducting a number of studies within the field of telehealth.
