In 2016, the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), with advice from the State Quality Council, created 3 regional quality councils (RQC). The councils were charged with establishing a quality monitoring system to measure & report on services for people with disabilities in their region. These councils will also analyze the information gathered & coordinate a regional response to remove barriers & service gaps, set priorities to improve home & community based long-term service & supports for people with disabilities based on regional strengths & needs, report regional findings to the State Quality Council which will share the information with DHS & make recommendations for system improvements.
We'll work with your schedule.
