Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Initiative
People on the Go Maryland is partnering with Liberty Healthcare on a five-year grant with the state of Maryland to support the data collection of the National Core Indicators data from individuals receiving disability services throughout the year. This data helps states determine the services (and the quality of those services) that are being delivered compared to other states. In our partnership with Liberty, People On the Go supports this effort by assisting with information dissemination, recruitment, technical support, and training. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
