Since 1991 RIC has been recognized by US News and World Report as the number one rehabilitation hospital in the United States. In 2001, GeekPAK helped RIC establish the innovative LIFE Center. Since 2001, the LIFE Center has continuously leveraged the GeekPAK CMS to develop the largest repository of disability-specific information in the nation.
Using the GeekPAK CMS, RIC is able to maintain the largest online database of disability resources and is applying that same groundbreaking approach to human resources and experts within the RIC network of care.
The recent series of upgrades, enhancements and continuous improvements built upon the LIFE Center's unparalleled ability to provide crucial patient education and care information both online and in the LIFE Center library. Just as the LIFE Center enables patients and professionals to find the right information at the right time, GeekPAK developed tools to find similarly unique human resources to help patients with very specific care needs.
