Love you, Marty. My twin brother lived with cerebral palsy until he passed in 1999, and our work allows me to share his love with our world.

Unfortunately I have to leave for my next meeting but I echo Marty's comments and also the need to define variables that map to client satisfaction...

CALIFORNIA HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES (CHHS) GUIDING PRINCIPLES - "PERSON CENTERED, DATA DRIVE" - PDF Document (2 pages):https://www.chhs.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/CHHSA-Guiding-Principles.pdf
NickoleRenee Mensch
I heard this before, fix the system and don't try to fix the person
Marty Omoto
The following is the text of the one page California Health and Human Services (CHHS) "Guiding Principles" document that applies to all of the initiatives the agency and departments under the agency, it implements. :- "Adopt a Culture of Collaboration & Innovation: When possible, program design should be developed across departments, including those outside the Agency, implemented in a collaborative manner, and supported by our entire Agency. We will courageously try new approaches to solve our most intractable problems. The unceasing pursuit of innovation, applied thoughtfully, will catalyze our improvement efforts.- Focus on Outcomes & Value Generation: We must ensure that the delivery of our programs and services are centered on the needs of the people we serve. We therefore focus our attention and energy on work which will directly improve the lives of the people.(continued....)
Marty Omoto
(continuation of guiding principles): - Use Data to Drive Action: While we have built good systems to amass data, we find ourselves data rich but information poor. We must better leverage our data to understand the conditions in our community, the impact of our current programs, and the opportunities to improve our service delivery. Actionable data can help us advance social and economic mobility and improve the health and well-being of children, families, and individuals across California.- Put the Person back in Person-Centered: Somehow many “person-centered” programs stopped being about people and became focused on satisfying a specific funding source or administrative process. We must engage the people and their communities so that programs are structured to meet the diverse and unique needs of each community and constituent.(continued)
Marty Omoto
(continuation of the CHHS guiding principles): - See the Whole Person: Regardless of which department is leading on a given issue, we should always be thinking about what each person needs comprehensively to thrive, and integrating opportunities to meet those needs – both within government and with our community partner" We need to all look at these principles (the "we" refers to all people in all departments - but us too as advocates.
Marty Omoto
Welcome to the "family" here Josefina! Loved your comments.
Joyce McNair
Thank you, Eva.
Marty Omoto
BTW - question to DDS (Nancy or others who can answer) - can you mention again how this and the other new workgroup will interact with the existing standing workgroups of the Developmental Services Task Force? There needs to be a connection to use the work of those existing standing workgroups and the expertise and value the people brought to those workgroups. Thanks and thanks to everyone
Marty Omoto
Very good comments - thanks Michi
Marty Omoto
DDS and this workgroup should check with different ideas in other states and from different advocates here in CA on person centered outcomes - it is easier to do on a one to one basis - much much harder to track and implement person centered outcomes statewide - but it can be done and needs to be done to achieve the critical goal of looking at the whole person. Pam Scrano of Community Vocational Services (CVS) in Fresno has some good ideas on this - among others.
Marty Omoto
Mary Lou is doing a fantastic job facilitating this workgroup meeting - appreciate it
Marty Omoto
Ask polling question if people like Brian Winfield's latest background
Ardena Bartlett
we cant vote
Joyce McNair
I can’t use the submit tab.
Marty Omoto
BTW - also agree and support comments by Anna and also previous panelist who spoke of different problems or crisis that come up. Critical we remember that - that no solution is permanent - circumstances and people change and evolve. We need to remember that often we face immediate and longer term crisis - and need ways to have responses that help that are linked to person centered outcomes and regional center performance. And whatever we do - reinforce that we are all in this together (whether we like it or not).
Marty Omoto
Poor Brian - he always gets left out on his backgrounds. I loved his circus background he used one time
Josefina Nieves
This was awesome, Thank you for the invitation. I will be on all the meetings.
Marty Omoto
To add to Nancy's comment just now - definitely person centered outcomes and how all this ties into the larger state effort (facilitated by CA Healt and Human Services) to bring together data with goals including looking at the whole person
Mary Lou Bourne /she/her
We will be ending the poll now.
Joyce McNair
Hi, Sherry.
Mary Lou Bourne /she/her
thank you all for giving us your input!
Marty Omoto
Take care everyone. Be safe. And Brian - work on your backgrounds.
