Partners Health Management is looking for assistance to accomplish our mission and contractual requirements. Periodically, we issue requests for proposals (RFP), requests for information (RFI), or requests for quotations or qualifications (RFQ) and post them on this page. Please review our current opportunities and follow the directions outlined in the downloadable documents.
RFI#0322-001 – NADD (National Association for the Dually Diagnosed) Certification
Request for Information—NADD (National Association for the Dually Diagnosed) Certification
Partners is initiating this Request for Information (RFI) to solicit responses from appropriately qualified organizations to participate in a membership and certification process through NADD. Based on information from www.thenadd.org, NADD is “a membership association for professionals, care providers and families to promote understanding of services for individuals who have developmental disabilities and mental health needs.”
It is important for organizations providing services to individuals with dual diagnoses and complex needs to consider participating in this RFI. The certification process will assist staff to build the skills needed to better serve individuals with multiple diagnoses and needs. Certification is a way to assure payors and consumers that staff have the skills needed to deliver quality services.
As Partners continues to support value, innovation and performance across the network, the NADD certification is certainly an opportunity for providers to demonstrate a focus on quality. This certification may potentially offer opportunities for enhanced compensation in the future.
RFI #0322-001 is specifically to identify organizations currently in Partners’ provider network and their employees who are qualified and interested in becoming certified through NADD for Clinical Certification (NADD-CC) and Direct Support Professional Certification (NADD-DSP).
This RFI offers an overview of Partners, requirements to submit an RFI response and links for additional resources.
To be considered for this RFI, you must submit the required RFI response form by Friday, May 13, 2022.
