Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS) Client Treatment Perceptions Survey (TPS)
(Please check back periodically for updates.)
As part of the DMC-ODS waiver evaluation, counties are required to have their network of providers administer the client Treatment Perceptions Survey. The information collected will be used to measure adult clients’ perceptions of access to services and the quality of care. The TPS is required to fulfill the county External Quality Review Organization (EQRO) requirement related to having a valid client survey. The data may also be used by counties (and service providers) to evaluate and improve the quality of care and client experience.
If you have questions, please contact Cheryl Teruya, Ph.D., at email@example.com
