Craig Stenning, Director, BHDDH, was the Guest Speaker for the DDC’s Quarterly Meeting held at the Radisson Hotel in Warwick on January 16, 2013. Director Stenning commented that the department was entering the next phase for implementation of “Project Sustainability”. The initial phase was for the department to bring transparency to the DD Service System by utilizing a new uniform assessment tool, the “Supports Intensity Scale (SIS)” to provide the basis for consumer-directed care planning and to align resources to individual needs; and to develop a new equitable rate structure for all agencies for billing for services provided to individuals.
Director Stenning stated all people with disabilities
should receive the right services in the right place, in the least restrictive environment, at the right time and integrated in the community… people have a right to live in the community.
