National Survey

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.

It’s important to know that this research is self-reported.  You will fill out a daily (Monday through Friday) survey from the information from your phone -- the information is NOT submitted directly from your phone. The survey asks questions about pain, how you are interacting socially, number of phone calls, texts, number of texts, and other information about how we live on a daily basis.

​"I participated in this study for 6  months. It is simple and only takes a few minutes each day.  I've learned a lot about myself and use it daily to improve my burn recovery quality, both physically and emotionally"  - Diana Tenney
