APS Healthcare/Southwestern PA Healthcare Quality Unit

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

The goal of the Healthcare Quality Unit (HCQU) is to assure that individuals with developmental disabilities are positively influenced by the work of our HCQY and receive the highest quality health care in order to enable them to enjoy life to its fullest potential.

The HCQU provides technical assistance and physical and behavioral health related trainings to developmental disability service systems and support staff to better assist people with developmental disabilities and also collects data via individual health risk profiles to focus our activities in improving the quality of care for individuals.

The HCQU disseminates information and builds capacity so individuals with developmental disabilities may receive better healthcare and have access to community opportunities.

The HCQU also supports professionals in building capacity in the community. Often there is limited access to fitness facilities or fitness trainers who are comfortable working with people with developmental disabilities. The HCQU is attempting to break these barriers so people with developmental disabilities can have access to fitness opportunities
