RTC/OM HCBS Measurement Education Modules

What Does it Mean to be Person-Centered?

  • People have the right to envision a life based on their personal values, preferences, and interests
  • The measurement process therefore needs to provide an opportunity for them to fully voice the outcomes they desire to experience.
  • To be person-centered means to focus on the person’s own perspective and the degree to which something is important to them.
  • In addition a person-centered approach extends measurement to consider both what is important to the person and what is important for the person.
