ISDH Report Card Score Proposed Changes
IHCA met with the ISDH last month to continue discussions about the proposed changes to the ISDH Report Card Score methodology. After receiving positive and negative feedback, the ISDH is going to revise the proposal by examining the point allocation for each tag cited. Under the original proposal, points were assigned to each tag only with respect to the severity component and did not take into consideration the scope component. In addition, ISDH is ensuring that tags are not double counted when a complaint survey is conducted at the same time an annual survey is conducted. A new data run on the proposed methodology should be available soon, and IHCA will get that out to members asap.
