The Departments of Human Services (DHS), Health, Drug and Alcohol (D&A) Programs and Aging regulate a variety of health and human services providers in order to protect the health and safety of Pennsylvanians. Among their regulatory activities, they license or certify providers and conduct incident management, as required by state and federal law.
The four departments are currently re-examining their processes to identify opportunities to coordinate efforts in order to streamline the licensing, certification and incident management process and increase efficiencies for providers and the commonwealth, while maintaining and enhancing the quality of their licensing and certification activities and of the providers they regulate.
As part of this process, the departments are seeking input from stakeholders of the Departments of Human Services, Health, Drug and Alcohol Programs, and/or Aging on the following questions.
