Share this page

ANCOR is sharing this announcement by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) because quality measurement and person-centered care is an increasingly prominent policy discussion occurring in the disability field, and it is important for our members to participate in panels such as this one.

As shared by the ACL:

“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is working with the Administration for Community Living through the National Quality Forum (NQF) to address quality measurement in person-centered planning. NQF is seeking individuals with experience in person-centered care to serve on a multi-stakeholder panel. The nomination period is open until March 29, 2019, at 6 PM.

Over an 18-month period, NQF will use a multi-stakeholder approach to address person-centered planning and practice (PCP) as part of long-term services and supports (LTSS) systems. Beginning with the establishment of definitions, core competencies, and necessary systems characteristics, this work will establish a foundation for performance measurement of person-centered planning, catalyzing the development of a robust quality measure set that interfaces with other healthcare quality measures across provider types, settings, payers, delivery systems, programs, conditions, and populations. Both practical as well as forward-looking considerations, recommendations, and guidance will be provided to enhance the success of person-centered planning and coordination at the state level.

Information about the project and the nomination project is on the NQF website

Nominations Due By Friday, March 29, 2019 at 6:00 pm ET.”
