MI Choice Information System (MICIS)

Description

The University of Michigan has co-developed assessment systems and screens to help target services appropriate to the needs of the state’s elderly persons. The current efforts consider effective ways to determine who is nursing-home eligible, a quality of life measure, and understanding of the assessment system used by the home help program. We continue to support the development of health policy in the state using “micro-date” describing the characteristics of individual nursing home residents and and home care clients statewide.
