Quality Incentive Program (QIP)

The QIP is designed to improve consumer outcomes, service provider performance, and the quality of services.  Participating service providers that meet or exceed quality measures developed by DDS with input from stakeholders, are eligible for incentive payments.

The QIP Stakeholder Workgroup helped determine six areas of focus for the QIP, those six areas are below.  Each focus area has one or more quality measure(s) tied to specific desired outcomes, with corresponding performance targets and incentives.
