The National Core Indicators (NCI) Survey provides an opportunity for members who receive Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) to report their satisfaction with their services and level of community integration. Colorado has been participating in the NCI surveys since 2013.
The information collected through these surveys is used to better understand the effectiveness of HCBS administered by the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (Department) and improve supports and services provided in the state.
What does NCI Measure?
Colorado participates in four (4) surveys:
The In-Person Survey (IPS) is a face to face conversation completed with a minimum of 400 individuals who are 18 years of age or older and receiving at least one paid service from the state (in addition to case management).
The face-to face portion of the IPS is conducted in person with the person receiving services. Colorado has been participating in the survey since 2013. Currently, individuals who are receiving services through the Developmental Disabilities (DD) waiver or the Supported Living Services (SLS) waiver may be contacted for an interview.
The National Core Indicators-Aging and Disabilities (NCI-AD™) is an initiative designed to support states’ interest in assessing the performance of their programs and delivery systems in order to improve services for older adults and individuals with physical disabilities. NCI-AD’s primary aim is to collect and maintain valid and reliable data that give states a broad view of how publicly-funded services impact the quality of life and outcomes of service recipients.
The Staff Stability Survey is an on-line survey of provider agencies supporting adults with ID/DD in residential, employment, day services and other in-home or community inclusion programs. The survey captures information about wages, benefits, and turnover of the direct care professional workforce, hired by agencies. The Staff Stability Survey is mandated by HB18-1407 to measure improvement in the quality and stability of the workforce of DSPs assisting adults with IDD in Colorado.
The Child Family Survey (CFS) is mailed to families who have a child (under age 18) with I/DD living in the family home. The family member with I/DD must be receiving at least one service, in addition to case management.
