August 2018 Issue 
 
The Network is working with 20 facilities, representing 10% of the Network 1 service area. The Network aims to improve patient education about vocational rehabilitation (VR) and employment networks (EN), regular elicitation of patients' goals, and genuine efforts to achieve them. Moreover, as a result of the QIA patients will better understand the benefits of goal setting, VR and EN services, and how to utilize those services.
 
If you have any questions about the facility's role and responsibilities for implementing the QIA, please call 203-285-1213.
 
NOTE: Documentation of vocational rehabilitation status in CROWNWeb is vital, as it will be the source of measuring improvement at the facility-level.

Tools & Resources
In addition to all the wonderful education your facility  is providing, it is pertinent every patient who has received a VR referral or is receiving VR services is correctly entered into the CROWNWeb data system.
