Improving Health Outcomes Initiative Collaborative Learning Center

The DBHDD Office of Health & Wellness (OHW) in collaboration with IntellectAbility has developed Health Care Plans (HCPs) that can be generated through the Health Risk Screening Tool system (HRST). These HCPs have been developed based on body systems which include the following:

  • Bowel and Bladder Management Healthcare Plan
  • Cardiovascular System Management Healthcare Plan
  • COVID-19 Healthcare Plan
  • Endocrine System Management Healthcare Plan
  • Gastrointestinal Management Healthcare Plan
  • Mental Health Management Healthcare Plan
  • Musculoskeletal Management Healthcare Plan
  • Neurological Management Healthcare Plan
  • Person Specific Healthcare Plan
  • Preventative and Routine Healthcare Maintenance Healthcare Plan
  • Reproductive System Management Healthcare Plan
  • Respiratory System Management Healthcare Plan
  • Skin Integumentary Management Healthcare Plan

Providers are not required to use these HCPs; however, they include all the essential elements of an HCP identified in the Nursing Services Chapters in the Comprehensive Supports Waiver Program Chapter 1300 – 3600 manual and the New Options Waiver Program manual found on the Georgia Medicaid Management Information System (GAMMIS) website.

Provider RNs can register on the DBHDD Developmental Disabilities Training site for the Provider HRST Healthcare Plan Training here:

(https://dbhdd.georgia.gov/training/developmental-disabilities-training-announcements).

When the Provider RN has completed the Provider HRST HCP Training they will then be given access to the HCP Editor Role in the HRST system. Providers can refer to DBHDD Policy Healthcare Plans for Individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in Community Settings, 02-266 to identify essential elements of the HCP to be incorporated into their provider HCP documents until HRST training have been completed.
