Provider Organizational Compliance
The HCBS settings requirements reflect a new paradigm in home and community based services. This paradigm embraces new and enhanced expectations for services that include an individual’s meaningful experience in community life, individual autonomy and opportunities for personal growth. The experience of the individual receiving services is a predominant factor when providing services and supports.
Provider organizational compliance is achieved when a provider demonstrates that it has incorporated the HCBS settings requirements into its policies, procedures, staff training and operating practices. These are considered critical components necessary for a provider to transition services and supports and all settings to this new HCBS paradigm.
As a provider, organizational compliance ensures you have the tools needed to facilitate full compliance across ALL settings. These tools provide a foundation to identify and implement needed changes, strengthen competence and consistency among direct support professionals, and fully incorporate HCBS values and principles into the culture of your organization.
