Announcement 21-037 is to inform all provider agencies that the 2019–2020 IM4Q Reports have been published and are available on MyODP. As previously announced, provider-level Independent Monitoring for Quality (IM4Q) reports and provider profiles will not be issued with 2019–2020 data

Due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) suspended completion of all face-to-face interviews by IM4Q local programs in March 2020. This resulted in a significant number of surveys not being completed. While ample data was collected to create a statewide summary report for 2019–2020, the data was not sufficient to provide reliable provider-level reports.

This has also prevented provider profiles based on 2019–2020 IM4Q data from being completed. A reduced number of IM4Q interviews resumed virtually in 2020–2021. Following the closure of the IM4Q cycle, ODP determined that there was enough data collected to release the 2019-2020 report, including a Statewide Summary for 2020.

ODP Announcement 21-069 announces the release of the Quality Assessment and Improvement (QA&I) Annual Statewide Report for Cycle 1 Fiscal Years: 2017–2018, 2018–2019, 2019–2020. This provides a review of results gathered from Administrative Entities (AEs), Supports Coordination Organizations (SCOs), and Providers. The report includes a summary analysis of statewide data collected during the first three-year cycle of QA&I for the Office of Developmental Programs’ (ODP’s) Consolidated, Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) and Community Living waivers, collectively referred to as the Intellectual Disability/Autism (ID/A) waivers.

This report highlights successes and opportunities for systemic quality improvement discovered during QA&I reviews in a streamlined, easy-to-use format. Key results are underscored in entity-specific subsections entitled “Reasons to Celebrate” and “Highlighting Opportunities.” The intent of the latter is to encourage entities to target these low performing areas with quality improvement activities. The QA&I Annual Statewide Report can be accessed on the MyODP website on the QA&I reports page. You may also access the QA&I report directly.
