MH/DD – Targeted Case Management Advisory Board Meeting

May 22, 2008


Tama County MH/DD Advisory meeting was held at the Tama County CPC Building Toledo, Iowa on May 22, 2008 at 7:00pm.


PRESENT WERE: Jim Dinsdale, Gary Mattson, Tammy Weiss, Dann Larmore, Ron Busch, Keith Sash, Kim Carter, Larry Vest, Todd Rickert and Tammy Wise.


CALL TO ORDER: President Gary Mattson called the meeting to order at 7:10 pm


MINUTES:  January 24, 2008 approved – no changes  


Agenda Items(s):


Elections:  Keith Sash made a motion and Larry Vest seconded the motion to accept Ron Busch and Dann Larmore for an additional 2yr term.  Arlene was absent at this time.


Goal Updates: Discussion was held about contacting local organizations in order to meet and let their members know who we are.  Todd has a 15-20 minute speech that he would like to give.  This will give access information and funding sources.  This will help with referrals.  Tammy will try to locate information from the Chamber and Tama County Economic Development.


HIPAA Training:  Kim and Tammy were given HIPAA training documentation and discussion was held as to what is allowed with authorization to be released.  The MH/DD Board must also follow the HIPAA rules. (Mary, Pat, Craig and Bonnie will be done at next meeting)


Regional Service Network: Discussion was held on the Regional Service Network concept.  The Tama County Board of Supervisors have approved of  Tama County CPC exploring the possibility being included in the Regionalized Service Network.  There are currently ten(10) counties which includes Grundy, Chickasaw, Black Hawk, Wright, Butler, Floyd, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo and Franklin that make up the network.  The concept of the network is to have local control of funding for services verses state.  State funding would be allocated to a region based on the current formula.  There would be one Management Plan for the entire Region.  The Tama County Board of Supervisors will have final decision as to weather Tama County will participate.  This will be a 2 year trial period.  There were a lot of concerns as to being with a region when individually the CPC offices do such a good job.  



TCM IME Audits:   As of date all client files audited are in complete compliance. 



Referrals: At this time we have approximately 2-5 new referrals.


Review PIP: Goal #1- Tama Case Management would like to ensure that qualities of Case Management services are being provided by the agency and client files are current and have required documentation in them.

Todd and Tammy did onsite visit with North Star to make sure goals are being addressed. North Star does an excellent job.  Capstone and Progress Industries are the next sites we are planning on visiting.  This is an ongoing goal.


Update on Rules: There are changes coming in the near future.  We are tracking in 15 minute increments at this time and expect this will be in the new rules.





Case Management Review:  Linda Kemp’s review of case management files indicated that we are in compliance.  She had many compliments of our unit. 



September 25th, 2008 at the Tama County CPC Office, 211 W. State St., Toledo, IA 52342


ADJOURNMENT: 9:00 pm Larry Vest moved to adjourn the meeting and Keith Sash seconded the motion.  Motion carried.
