Recovery Coordination Program Introduction to Tools Support for Wounded, Ill and Injured Service Members, Veterans, their Families and Those Who Support Them The process of care, management, and transition coordination for Recovering Service Members (RSMs) is composed of 10 uniform steps. The Comprehensive Recovery Plan (CRP) is the primary tool used for indentifying needs and goals, and coordinating the delivery of services and resources. There are three prerequisite tools used in sequential order to build the CRP: Category Assignment Tool Enrollment Form Comprehensive Needs Assessment Category Comprehensive Enrollment Recovery Assignment Needs Form Plan Tool Assessment Category Enrollment Comprehensive Comprehensive Assignment Form Needs Recovery Tool Assessment Plan Tool used to determine Tool used to the enrollment of the Tool used by the Tool used to identify determine a RSM into the Recovery Recovery Team to the RSM’s and family’s Service member’s Coordination Program document the personal and further with the assignment of a summary of identified professional goals as consideration for Recovery Care needs for the RSM well as services, enrollment in the Coordinator (RCC) or a and/or family resources and Recovery Federal Recovery Care activities required to Coordination or Coordinator (FRC). achieve them.

These tools are: Category Assignment Tool, Enrollment Form, Comprehensive Needs Assessment, and Comprehensive Recovery Plan (CRP). The Category Assignment Tool is used to assign the RSM into a category (1, 2, or 3) based on extent of the illness or injury. RSMs in Category 1 are those who will return to duty within 180 days. Category 2 RSMs may return to duty, but will take longer than 180 days. RSMs in a Category 3 status are not likely to return to duty. If a RSM is rated a Category 2 or 3 the Enrollment form is completed. The Enrollment Form is the tool to determine if an RCC or FRC will be assigned to the RSM. It is completed by the Service Wounded Warrior Programs, and details the level of support the RSM will need. The form has three sections: 1. Administrative Information - used to centrally collect all the basic demographic data about the RSM 2. Acuity - potential key needs of the RSM and family resulting in a score that reflects the complexity of indentified needs and documents them in the preliminary needs section. 3. Preliminary Needs - initial check of any need that will impact the recovery, rehabilitation, and/or reintegration of the RSM. After completion of the Enrollment form, all RSM’s that have a qualifying acuity score will be enrolled in one of the programs and assigned an RCC or FRC. The RCC/FRC will be responsible to identify all the needs of the RSM after review of the RSM records (medical, personal, etc), interviews with the RSM and family, and consultation with the recovery team. These initial needs and observations will be recorded in the Comprehensive Needs Assessment. Once the Comprehensive Needs Assessment is completed, the RCC/FRC will lead the development of a recovery plan. The recovery plan documents the needs and goals of the RSM and family, and the action steps that will need to occur to meet them. The action steps identify the lead recovery team member responsible for the indentified action, along with applicable contact information and due dates.
