  • HCBS Quality Measures from the National Core Indicators for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and Aging and Physical Disabilities

    National Core Indicators for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (NCI) and the National Core Indicators for Aging and Disabilities (NCI-AD) are two distinct sets of survey instruments designed to assess state systems performance along a number of key quality indicators for various populations. Data collected by NCI and NCI-AD are used by state and federal programs as indicators of system performance. Under contract with the Administration on Community Living (ACL), HSRI and its partners NASDDDS and NASUAD are working to: 1. Refine the NCI and NCI-AD suite of tools using generally accepted survey development processes for psychometric testing, define and document sampling protocols, and further refine protocols for survey delivery and technical assistance to states. 2. Identify and specify PRO-PMs (‘Patient Reported Outcomes’ – Performance Measures as defined by the National Quality Forum) from the NCI and NCI-AD suite of surveys for submission to the National Quality Forum for endorsement.

  • Demonstration and Evaluation of Self-Direction in Behavioral Health

    Self-direction (also called self-directed care, consumer direction, and participant direction) is a model for organizing services and supports that enables a service user to manage a flexible budget with the help of a specially trained support broker. HSRI is conducting an evaluation of a three-year, multi-state demonstration project of self-direction for populations with serious mental health conditions. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the project is coordinated by the Boston College National Resource Center for Participant-Directed Services. Our evaluation involves two main components: a formative process evaluation and a system-level outcome evaluation focusing on service utilization and cost.
