Strategic Planning for the Expansion of California's Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Network

Client: California State Independent Living Council (SILC)

Mission Analytics worked with the California State Independent Living Council (SILC), in partnership with the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS), to develop a strategic plan for statewide expansion of California’s network of Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs). The final strategic plan had four components: criteria for designating new ADRCs; standards for determining how entities should partner to form an ADRC (e.g., Area Agencies on Aging and Independent Living Centers); a plan for publicizing the services provided by ADRCs (such as options counseling and remote assessment); and an estimation of how much the Medicaid program will save when individuals are diverted away from facilities and institutional care. The strategic plan included input from an Advisory Committee that met bi-monthly and from groups of stakeholders convened in different parts of the state.
