2015-2016 Gaps Analysis study
The current Gaps Analysis study was completed August 2017 and looked at the calendar years of 2015-16.
Instead of conducting a survey of all lead agencies, DHS contracted with Wilder Research to conduct eleven regional meetings, each attended by approximately 40 invited stakeholders. The regional meetings were designed to provide an opportunity for participants to discuss and prioritize top service gaps, identify solutions, and develop action plans to implement the solutions. Regional meeting participants included representatives from counties, tribes, and managed care organizations with administrative or contract authority to provide assessment and support planning; advocates for current and potential service users; and providers of HCBS and MH services and supports.
A brief summary of all regional meetings conducted by June 1 is included in the 2017 Status of Long-Term Services and Supports 2017 legislative report submitted to the legislature in August 2017.
The 2015-16 Gaps Analysis Statewide report provides a summary of the results from all eleven regional meetings. Summaries of these regional meetings and the data profiles used developed for the regional also are available to download.
