The Kepro Health Care Quality Unit (Kepro HCQU) is contracted to support the efforts of the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), Administrative Entities, and provider agencies within the intellectual disability/autism (ID/A) service delivery system, family caregivers, and individuals with ID/A, to continuously improve the quality of life experienced by individuals throughout southwestern PA - Allegheny, Bedford, Cambria, Fayette, Greene, Somerset, Washington, and Westmoreland Counties.
Our goal is to enhance the health and wellness of people with ID/A through the sharing of information with individuals, agency and family caregivers, and community health professionals, thereby supporting the opportunity for individuals with ID/A to live everyday lives. To achieve this goal, we offer physical and behavioral health-related information that reflects current and accepted standards of care, evidence-based practices, and effective care strategies attuned to the specific needs of people with ID/A. This information is delivered in the form of training, technical assistance, capacity-building activities, and general dissemination of informational materials and resources. In addition, information is offered in response to considerations generated through the Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) process.
Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc., is the service provider on behalf of Westmoreland County Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
