The doctoral capstone project focused on developing a current website for Drive Well Michigan driver rehabilitation clinic that incorporated web content accessibility strategies and increased patient autonomy by allowing them to initiate referrals, schedule appointments online, and pay online. This mechanism was concurrently developed to decrease the amount of time that occupational therapists on site previously dedicated towards completing the entire referral, scheduling and payment process over the phone. Additionally, two electronic record systems were researched, demonstrated, and presented to site mentor, and two documentation summary templates were designed to be integrated into the chosen future system. Lastly, practice management documents, an updated brochure, and next step planning documents were created to enhance organization, broaden community outreach, maximize financial resources, and sustain the efforts of the fourteen week capstone experience.
