Vermont Designated Agencies (DAs) and one adult Specialized Service Agency (SSA) continue to report a steady percentage of adults who are discharged from adult outpatient programs.
Vermont DAs and the one SSA are targeting this measure as a quality improvement initiative for 2022, in order to work towards better reliability and validity across providers in determining how "improved" is defined and endorsed.
