ADvancing States Staff Spotlight: Rosa Plasencia, Director, National Core Indicators – Aging & Disabilities

Rosa Plasencia is Director of the National Core Indicators – Aging & Disabilities (NCI-AD) at ADvancing States. NCI-AD is a collaborative effort managed by ADvancing States and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI) to collect and maintain valid and reliable data from State Medicaid, Aging, and Disability agencies to provide insight into how publicly-funded services impact the quality of life and outcomes of service recipients. 

This past year, NCI-AD launched a State of the Workforce survey – a provider-level survey to help states gather information about direct service workers. Plasencia’s experience with National Core Indicators has helped the Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research (CROR) Rehabilitation and Research Training Center (RRTC) on Home and Community-Based Services with the development of HCBS outcome measures.
