Overview

Welcome to the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) State-Operated Developmental Center (SODC) Quality Scorecard! The SODC Quality Scorecard provides families and the general public with information about IDHS's 7 SODCs, beyond what is already published in the SODC Profiles and Tier Reports.

The Scorecard is meant to acquaint families and the general public with important information about each of the SODCs, but it is not meant to be the sole source of information upon which families make the important decision about where to receive services. For that decision, we encourage families to work with the appropriate Independent Service Coordination (ISC) agency.

The User's Guide, which can be found on this page below the Scorecard, contains useful information about the Scorecard layout and how to navigate the Scorecard, as well as definitions of terms and additional context for certain data elements. If, while using the Scorecard, you have a question about the content or use, please refer to the User's Guide.

SODC Quality Scorecard

The Quality Scorecard contains an extensive amount of information and is best viewed on a widescreen monitor, if possible. To view the Scorecard on the full screen of your monitor, click the Full Screen button in the bottom right corner of the Scorecard.

SODC Quality Scorecard Data (HTML table of all the data provided in the Scorecard above. It may be easier to use with assistive technologies such as screen readers.)

SODC Quality Scorecard User's Guide

The User's Guide is organized into two primary sections: 1.) Understanding the Layout and Using the SODC Quality Scorecard, and 2.) Definitions, Data Sources, and Data Context. The first section is about general layout, and functionality, with information about how to use the filters and the map. The second section includes detailed explanations of each data element included in the Scorecard. This includes the data source for the information and additional information that puts certain data elements into context (e.g., statewide averages, etc.).

Understanding the Layout and Using the SODC Quality Scorecard

Note on Usability: The Quality Scorecard contains an extensive amount of information, and as such it is best viewed on a widescreen monitor, if possible. To view the Scorecard on the full screen of your monitor, click the Full Screen button in the bottom right corner of the Scorecard.

The SODC Scorecard is divided into three sections: 1.) Administrative Information, 2.) Capacity and Population Served, and 3.) Safety and Quality. In addition, the Quality Scorecard includes a map so that you can see where each SODC is located. When you initially load the Scorecard, it is populated with information for all SODCs. However, if you would like to view information for only a single SODC at a time, you can select an SODC from the "Select an SODC from List" dropdown menu, or you can select an SODC by clicking it on the map.

Data Element Definitions

This section provides definitions for every data element contained in the Scorecard. It is organized in the same way the Scorecard is organized, with a table of definitions for the Administrative Information section of the Scorecard, a table of definitions for the Capacity and Population Served section of the Scorecard, and a table of definitions for the Safety & Quality section of the Scorecard.

Administrative Information

Note: If you click the row for an SODC in this table, it will open a separate window with the SODC profile.

Data Element Definition / Background
Name The name of the SODC
Address, City, State, Zip The address of the SODC
Year Opened The year the SODC opened
Phone The primary phone number for the SODC
Executive Director The name of the Executive Director for the SODC

Capacity and Population Served

Note: If you click the row for an SODC in this table, it will open the Illinois Department of Public Health page for the SODC. In that window, may need to refresh your browser to load the specific page for the SODC.

Data Element Definition / Background Data Context
Total Population Served The total number of individuals served in the SODC, as of the last day of the quarter for publication cutoff As of 6/30/2019, the SODCs range from a population of 86 at Fox to 474 at Shapiro.
Average HRST Score This value is based on the site-level average Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) score. The Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) is a web-based screening instrument designed to detect health destabilization early and prevent preventable illness, health related events and even death. It is a reliable, field-tested screening tool that consists of 22 rating items, divided into 5 health categories. Each of the 22 items consists of questions answered by the Rater. When fully answered the HRST assigns a numeric degree of health risk to the person called a Health Care Level (HCL). The scale ranges from 1 (low risk) to 6 (high risk). (More information on the HRST can be found at http://hrstonline.com/faq/.)
  • Lowest indicates a site-level average HRST of less than 1
  • Low indicates a site-level average HRST of 1-1.99.
  • Moderate indicates a site-level average HRST of 2-2.99.
  • High indicates a site-level average HRST of 3-3.99.
  • Highest indicates a sit level average HRST of 4 or higher (up to 6).
All averages are for individuals served at the SODC as of 6/30/3029.
Average MBI Score This value is based on the site-level average Maladaptive Behavior Index (MBI) score. The Maladaptive Behavior Index is a scale used in identifying the overall need for care, supervision or training due to behaviors which interfere with a person's ability to adjust to particular situations. The scale ranges from 0 (low need) to -100 (high need).
  • Lowest indicates a site-level average MBI of 0 to -9.99.
  • Low indicates a site-level average MBI of -10 to -19.99
  • Moderate indicates a site-level average MBI of -20 to -29.99
  • High indicates a site-level average MBI of -30 to -39.99
  • Highest indicates a site-level average MBI -40 or lower (down to -100).
All averages are for individuals served at the SODC as of 6/30/2019.
Avg Personal Care Required This value is based on the Inventory for Client and Agency Planning (ICAP), which is administered for each recipient of CILA services by a Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional (QIDP). The ICAP is a "comprehensive, structured instrument designed to assess the status, adaptive functioning, and service needs of clients" (Examiner's Manual, 1986). The score ranges from 0 (highest need) to 100 (lowest need).
  • Least indicates a site-level average ICAP of 80 or higher (up to 100).
  • Moderate indicates a site-level average ICAP of 60-79.99.
  • Regular indicates a site-level average ICAP of 40-50.99.
  • High indicates a site-level average ICAP of 20-39.99.
  • Highest indicates a site-level average ICAP of 0-19.99.
All averages are for individuals served at the SODC as of 6/30/2019.
Percent Auditory Impairment The percentage of individuals residing at the SODC with an auditory impairment As of 630/2019, the percent of the SODC population with an auditory impairment ranges from 15% at Ludeman to 56% at Murray.
Percent Non-Ambulatory The percentage of individuals at the SODC who are non-ambulatory As of 6/30/2019, the percent of the SODC population who is non-ambulatory ranges from 1% at Choate to 97% at Fox.
Percent Visual Impairment The percentage of individuals at the SODC with a visual impairment As of 6/30/2019, the percent of the SODC population with a visual impairment ranges from 22% at Choate to 70% at Mabley.

Safety and Quality

Note: If you click the row for an SODC in this table, it will open the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) substantiated report page for the SODC.

Data Element Definition
Substantiated OIG Investigations When OIG conducts an investigation, it determines whether an allegation is substantiated, unsubstantiated, or unfounded. A finding of "substantiated" means there is a preponderance of evidence to support the allegation.
OIG Self-Report to Complaint Ratio The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation at many care settings, including SODCs. SODC referrals to OIG either come from a representative of the SODC (a self-report) or from someone who is not a representative of the SODC (a complaint). This value shows the ratio of self-reports to complaints or, in other words, the ratio of referrals that come from SODC representatives versus those that come from individuals not representing the agency.
