Using Data to Plan for and Implement Community First Choice

June 13, 2015

Hilltop staff made several presentations at the 2015 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM) held June 13 through June 15 in Minneapolis. Executive Director Cynthia H. Woodcock, MBA, presented this poster for Director of Special Studies Ian Stockwell, PhD, at a State Health Research and Policy Interest Group poster session on June 13.
 
This poster shows that, when the enrollment trajectory of Maryland’s Community First Choice participants is examined, it becomes clear that some groups (such as individuals already in a 1915(c) waiver) are able to begin receiving services sooner than others. On average, CFC recipients used 96 percent of the personal or attendant care hours allocated on their plan of care. Also, planned services contained 58 percent more services on average than proposed by the acuity-based methodology.
