The Boston-Harvard Burn Injury Model System (BHBIMS) is one of four Burn Model Systems funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and dedicated to improving the lives of burn survivors. BHBIMS strives to provide the highest level of comprehensive burn care, beginning at the time of injury and extending through rehabilitation and eventual re-entry into community life. BHBIMS is also committed to conducting rigorous research, with a specific focus on the long-term functional and psychosocial outcomes of burn injury.

BHBIMS is a collaboration of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Shriners Hospitals for Children – Boston, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Boston University School of Public Health.

We are looking for 1 or 2 special people to participate in a pilot of the Daily Life Smartphone Study.  It’s simply to track the day-to-day activities of a burn survivor’s life.  Applicants need to be close enough to Boston to do an in-person interview and set-up at Spaulding Rehabilitation, Charlestown.  Please call today and join me in supporting our Burn Model System’s effort in ground-breaking research to benefit burn survivors.
