Webinar: The Home- and Community- Based Services (HCBS) Quality Framework Development

June 8, 2017

The HCBS Quality Framework Development webinar is the second event in ACL's HCBS quality webinar series. A goal of the series is to provide a platform among internal and external stakeholders to share developments and collaborate on efforts concerning HCBS quality. The lack of an organizing framework used to analyze measurement gaps has caused difficulties in determining where resources should be allocated for future measurement development.

Join ACL on June 28 at 2 pm Eastern to learn about the progress made in quality framework development. Please register online for the webinar.

Webinar agenda:

  • Discuss findings expected impact of two projects: The 2016 National Quality Forum report, Quality in Home and Community Based Services to Support Community Living: Addressing Gaps in Performance, and The SCAN Foundation publication, What Matters Most: Essential Attributes of a High-Quality System of Care for Adults with Complex Care Needs.
  • Question and answer session.


  • Kim Ibarra, MSc, Senior Program Manager, National Quality Forum
  • Bruce Chernof, MD, FACP, President and Chief Executive Officer, The SCAN Foundation

Update:  Slides and the transcript from this webinar, along with materials from a previous webinar, can be found on the HCBS Quality page.

I have tried numerous times to click on the link to registration on line and continually tells me the server is unable???

We'll look into it and get back to you on email.  The registration website is not managed by ACL and is separate from ACL.gov, but we'll see what we can find out.  Thanks for letting us know about the problem!
