RTC/OM HCBS Measurement Education Modules

Measure in a More Person-Centered Way…

Measure from the person’s perspective and experience:

  • Measures must provide an opportunity for the person to express a preference, desire, need, or want, and indicate the degree to which these have been met
    • The person with a disability must be encouraged to answer the questions from their own perspective rather than someone answering on their behalf unless they are not able to respond to the questions.
    • Measurement information collected from someone other than the person with a disability is not person-centered.
