Client:  California Department of Developmental Services (DDS)

The California Department of Public Health, Licensing and Certification, Provider Certification Unit terminated the ICD/IID Provider Agreement for Sonoma Developmental Center (SDC) with an effective date of October 23, 2014. After reconsideration, this date was revised to July 1, 2016 and can be further extended to July 1, 2017 under a second reconsideration. A Settlement Agreement between several California agencies, including DDS, and SDC made H&W Independent Solutions, Inc. the Independent Monitor over the certification termination, including assessment of all phases of transferring SDC clients to community-based homes or other appropriate alternate settings. Mission Analytics provides data management and analysis for the Independent Monitor, including tracking outcomes for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who previously resided at SDC, developing an electronic dashboard to display relevant data, and developing capability to provide monthly reports from existing California databases.
