KEY INDICATORS FOR ADULT CARE
|NARA Webinar: Key Indicator Systems in Adult Care Settings – A Powerful Resource
Thursday, March 8 2018 – Register today!
Key Indicator Systems identify a statistically-validated subset of regulations that indicate compliance with the entire set of regulations, allowing licensing oversight agencies the ability to conduct abbreviated inspections while still ensuring that safe, high-quality care is provided in all settings.
Although agencies nationwide are moving towards Key Indicator Systems as an effective alternative to traditional licensing methods, nearly all Key Indicator Systems are developed for child care programs, and are vastly underutilized in adult-care licensing.
This webinar will present an overview of how Key Indicator Systems work, discuss why such systems are not more prevalent in adult-care licensing programs, and explore the benefits of Key Indicator Systems to persons in care, adult-care providers, the licensing agency, and the general public.
