Outcome Measures Developed by HDRI


The AM-PAC is a state-of-the-art outcome instrument that measures function in three domains: basic mobility, daily activities, and applied cognitive. The AM-PAC™ can be used for quality improvement, outcomes monitoring, and research activities in inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, home care, nursing homes, and long-term acute care settings. The AM-PAC is appropriate for functional assessment in adults with a wide range of diagnoses and functional abilities. Patients can respond to AM-PAC test items or the instrument can be completed by clinicians or family members. The AM-PAC is available in two basic formats: a computer-based version and outpatient short-form version.Visit the website. 


The Late-Life FDI™ is an outcome instrument developed specifically for community-dwelling older adults. The Late-Life FDI™ assesses and responds to meaningful change in two distinct outcomes: function—a person’s ability to do discrete actions or activities, and disability—a person’s performance of socially defined life tasks. There is a 16-item disability component and a 32-item function component. More about the LLFDI


The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI™) is a comprehensive clinical assessment of key functional capabilities and performance in children between the ages of six months and seven years. The PEDI™ can be used to evaluate older children with functional abilities that are less than those expected of a 7-year-old child without disabilities. The PEDI™ is a descriptive measure of a child’s current functional performance and can track changes over time. The PEDI™ measures both capability and performance of functional activities in three content domains:

  • Self-care
  • Mobility
  • Social functionThe PEDI-MCAT™ is the latest addition to the PEDI family of instruments. It is normed from 6 months to 14 years of age and includes the assessment of self-care and mobility function.
