The Texas Quality Matters website was developed by the Center for Policy and Innovation (CPI) at the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS). This website will direct you to a variety of resources and initiatives. Texas Quality Matters will be our way to provide information to you.
The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) has contracted with the NACES Plus Foundation Inc. to collect data for the 2013 Nursing Facility Quality Review. Nurse Quality Reviewers from NACES will visit approximately 1100 nursing facilities to conduct onsite reviews of quality of care, as well as assessments of resident satisfaction with their quality of life. The onsite reviews will begin the week of June 10, 2013. The information collected will be used to benchmark the quality of nursing facility services, trend progress in quality improvement and inform the state's interventions to improve long-term care services and outcomes.
The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) has contracted with NACES Plus Foundation Inc. to collect data for the 2013-2014 Long-Term Services and Supports Quality Review. Approximately 5,500 adults will participate in face-to-face interviews from April 30 to Aug. 30, 2013. During that period, 1,400 families of children who receive services DADS administers will be invited to respond to a survey by mail, telephone or Survey Monkey. Adults and families of children will be asked questions about access to services, service delivery, choice and decision-making, respect, community integration, and helpfulness of the services they received. The information collected will help state officials and policymakers assess how satisfied people are with their services and identify where improvement in services were found as well as areas with opportunities to improve long-term services and supports.
