National Core Indicators (NCI)
In a partnership with the state Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) and the Bureau of Quality Improvement Services (BQIS) IIDC will conduct the National Core Indicators surveys for the state of Indiana inform continuous quality improvement of services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) across the state. The National Core Indicators (NCI) is utilized across 46 states to assess the quality and outcomes of Developmental Disability (DD) services provided to individuals with IDD and their families. NCI offers valid, reliable, person-centered measures that states use to demonstrate how publicly funded supports are impacting people’s lives and to determine where they can improve the quality of those supports. CCSC leads data collection of the NCI Adult Consumer survey via interviews conducted with approximately 1,000 adult consumers receiving services through the Family Support and Community Integration and Habilitation Waivers, as well as those receiving Supervised Group Living services. NCI for adult consumers focuses on topics related to Home and Community Based Services that include; Home and Living situation, Employment/Other Daily Activities, Friends and Family, Satisfaction with Services/Supports, Rights & Privacy, Community Inclusion, Choices, Rights, Access to Needed Supports, Health and Wellness, and Safety.
