Target Rationale
An 83.7% target was set to match a federal initiative designed to effectively transition people from nursing homes to receiving services. We feel that even though performance has been flat in the last year, pursuing the current action plan steps ensures we can meet an 83.7% target. This was determined by studying other states and noting their improvement using similar action plan steps. Action steps being used to reach the target include developing resources to meet the needs of people with challenging behaviors; working with stakeholders to design and implement a new federal program called Community First Choice that will expand choices for clients and generate significantly increased federal contributions; developing additional resources to support families and informal caregivers; providing early information to individuals and families about their choices for care; developing partnerships with local hospitals to keep nursing facility stays short and focused on rehabilitation vs. long-term residency; and examining current training and other requirements for home care workers to ensure an adequate workforce to support people receiving care at home.
