The Office of Developmental Disabilities Services (ODDS) started the Blueprint Project to make case management work better for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
Lead by the
ODDS Strategic Plan, the project will create a case management system that:
- Is easy to use.
- Supports every person to make their own choices.
- Centers on people's unique needs and goals.
- Helps all people understand the services they need.
- Ensures all people can get services they need.
- Includes all people no matter:
- Where they live.
- What language they speak.
- How they communicate.
Blueprint Workgroup Recommendations report
This 2022 report guides the Blueprint Project.
The report is based on years of research and public feedback.
ODDS contracted Health Management Associates for the initial research. They surveyed about 1,000 partners, self-advocates and other participants in Oregon's I/DD system.
The Case Management Blueprint Group used this research to draft an initial report. This group includes people with I/DD and their family members, case management professionals, advocates and providers.
ODDS gathered feedback on the initial report. ODDS held a public survey. Community and advocacy groups held listening sessions. The Blueprint Group used this feedback to write the final report in 2022.
