Support for Persons with Disabilities

ddDelmarva Foundation is a nationally-recognized quality improvement organization that supports statewide quality management systems for the delivery of services for individuals with intellectual, developmental, and other disabilities. We partner with state agencies to establish provider performance standards and data collection methodologies that drive the improvement of services delivered and support the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quality assurance requirements.

We utilize person-centered reviews along with provider reviews for a 360-degree understanding of the strengths and deficiencies of the service delivery system at the individual, provider, and statewide levels. Our highly-trained and experienced staff utilizes nationally- and internally-developed, state-specific instruments to gather information from individuals during face-to-face interviews.. We also design and utilize review instruments to gather provider performance information that supports the data reporting needs of each partner state.

Delmarva Foundation’s websites are designed to help individuals, families, providers, and state personnel access instruments, review findings, key resources, and pertinent information for training and other quality management initiatives.
