Webinar: How to Use National Core Indicators to Develop Contracting Strategies

January 19, 2018

Register for January 24 webinar

Community-based organizations (CBOs) serving people with disabilities can use national data resources to understand the performance of health plans in their communities and identify areas where CBOs can help to improve performance.

The National Core Indicators (NCI)™ and National Core Indicators – Aging and Disabilities (NCI-AD)™ are voluntary programs that provide states data to measure and track the performance of their services and supports. Core indicators are standard measures used across states to assess the outcomes of services provided to individuals and families.

Please join the HCBS Business Acumen Center on January 24 at 12:30 PM Eastern for a one hour webinar about how to use national data to develop business proposals for contracting with health plans.

Martha Roherty, Executive Director and April Young, Director, National Core Indicators – Aging & Disabilities with the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) and Laura Vegas, Director, Managed Care Business Acumen with the National Association of Developmental Disabilities describe how national performance data can be used to develop contract strategies with health plans.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand what the National Core Indicators and National Core Indicators – Aging and Disabilities are.
  • Understand how to use data from the National Core Indicators and National Core Indicators - Aging and Disabilities to develop contracting strategies.
  • Understand how to present your proposal to the health plans in your communities.

This webinar is available as part of the Disability Business Acumen grant from the Administration for Community Living to NASUAD in collaboration with nine national partners.
