We have posted an edited version (Executive Summary and the Appendices containing provider data) on the DOJ Updates page (a members only page); the results are not surprising and show that while needs are being met, we have not yet perfected how to make health and safety decisions in a “person-centered” way. “Though person’s basic needs in health (90.9%) and safety (94.6%) are met, they are not always supported and educated to direct their own health and safety through a person-centered approach, 71.3% and 62.6 percent respectively. Individuals were not always receiving services in the most integrated setting appropriate to the person’s desires and abilities (84.3%) or engaging in the community as desired (84.5%).”
The report period is for June 2015 to June 2016, and progress has certainly been made since then!
