With the growing role of home and community-based services (HCBS) in Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS), it is important to have a clear understanding of the different characteristics of the population transitioning from institutional care to HCBS, the trends occurring in LTSS over time, and the effect of the different programs. This resulted in Hilltop developing a series of metrics that were first presented to the Maryland Money Follows the Person (MFP) Stakeholder Advisory Group and are now available here in the form of chart books. These metrics can be tailored for any state to guide program development, explore other aspects of its LTSS system (such as opportunities for cost savings and program efficiency), and target populations for outreach efforts. This chart book discusses the second set of metrics, which focuses on the institutional characteristics of transitioned individuals. Also in this series are: Institutional Utilization and Transitions,The Service Use and Cost of Transitioned Individuals, The Quality of Life Survey Responses, and a Summary.
