RTC/OM HCBS Measurement Education Modules

How Can Measurement Be Made More Person-Centered?

  • Defining what is measured so that it takes into account a person’s preferences, desires, and needs.
    • Person-centered measurement assesses the extent to which a person’s outcomes meet their needs and preferences/desires.
  • Through involving stakeholders, including people with disabilities, in determining what is most important to measure and how to best measure it when developing measurement tools.
  • Making sure measures are accessible and relevant to people with a variety of abilities and backgrounds (e.g., making sure the words used are not too difficult for some individuals to understand).
