ODP Announcement 20-057 provides an updated timeline of target dates for completion of the Health Risk Screening Tool. Due to many additional responsibilities related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ODP has modified the guidance outlined in the HRST Protocol.
The timeline for providers to complete all HRST screenings has been extended to December 31, 2020. With the extended timeline, ODP will not redefine the phases for completion related to the individual’s Needs Level as included in the original protocol. Providers will determine the order in which the remaining screenings will be completed by December 31, 2020.
Clinical Reviewer Trainings and Advanced Rater Trainings will be provided periodically in a live, online format by HRS, Inc. Additionally, HRS, Inc has online training resources for providers.
