DOJ Settlement Agreement Requirements
for Quality Service Reviews (QSRs)
Section V.1 “Quality Service Reviews”
–
The Commonwealth shall use Quality Service Reviews to evaluate the quality of services
at the individual, provider, and system-wide level and the extent to which services are
provided in the most integrated setting appropriate to the individuals’ needs and choice
QSRs shall evaluate whether:
–
Individuals’ needs are being identified and met through person-centered planning;
–
Services are being provided in the most integrated setting appropriate to the individuals’
needs and consistent with their informed choice; and
–
Individuals are having opportunities for integration in living arrangements, work and other
day activities; access to community services and activities; and opportunities for
relationships with non-paid individuals
Information from QSRs is intended to be used to improve practice and the
quality of services on the provider, CSB, and system-wide levels

National Core Indicator (NCI) Survey
Instruments
•
Will use the National Core Indicators (NCI) survey instruments to meet
QSR requirements - http://nationalcoreindicators.org/indicators/
•
NCI indicator domains align with information required for QSR surveys:
– Individual Outcomes:
• Work (finding and maintaining community integrated employment)
• Community inclusion (participating in everyday community activities)
• Choice and decision-making (making choices about their lives and are actively
engaged in service planning)
• Self-determination (having the authority and support to direct and manage their
own services)
• Relationships (having friends and relationships)
• Satisfaction (receiving adequate and satisfactory supports)
Page 4
DBHDS
Virginia Department of
Behavioral Health and

NCI Surveys’ Domains - continued
– Family Outcomes:
• Information and planning (having information and support necessary to plan for
their services and supports)
• Choice and control (determining services and supports they receive and
individuals/agencies providing them)
• Access and support delivery (getting the services and supports they need)
• Community connections (using integrated community services and participating
in everyday community activities)
• Family involvement (maintaining connections with family members not living at
home)
• Satisfaction (receiving adequate and satisfactory supports)
• Family outcomes (having individual and family supports make a positive difference
in the lives of families)

NCI Surveys’ Domains - continued
– Health, Welfare, and Rights:
• Safety (being safe from abuse, neglect, and injury)
• Health (securing needed health services)
• Medications (having medications effectively and appropriately managed)
• Wellness (being supported to maintain healthy habits)
• Restraints (system is making limited use of restraints/other restrictive practices)
• Respect/rights (receiving the same respects/protections as others)
– Direct Care Staff Stability and Competence
• Turnover (low enough to maintain support continuity and resource efficiency)
• Competence (staff are competent to provide services and supports)
– System Performance:
• Service coordination (accessible, responsive, and support participation)
• Access (services are readily available to those who need and qualify for them)

Why Use NCI Surveys for QSRs?
The NCI Project is a collaborative effort between the National Association
of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and
the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI)
– Gathers a standard set of performance and outcome measures states can
use to track performance over time, compare results across states, and
establish benchmarks
– National goal is to have all state participate in NCI
•
Virginia has experience implementing the NCI adult survey in selected
regions to individuals receiving ID waiver services and the child family
survey
•
NCI participation provides Virginia access to NASDDS/HSRI staff support
and resources, including interviewer training and ODESA database

– Sample will be proportional to individuals that reside in each region
– DBHDS is working with the Partnership to develop a target number of
surveys for each region
– Surveys will be conducted by the Partnership between November
2013 to May 2014

Proposal for DOJ Quality Measures –
Case Management
Five new data elements will be established in CCS 3 to
collect this information starting March 6, 2014. Each data
element would use a three-point scale to respond to the
measure for the domain:
○ the measure was met,
○ the measure was partially met, or
○ the measure was not met.
