The rapid response system (RRS) is a new application being released by DODD to accelerate conversations between SSAs, QIDPs, and technology vendors. The RRS is a gateway for county board of developmental disabilities and intermediate care facilities personnel to request a consultation with technology vendors to identify what technology solutions might be beneficial for a person with developmental disabilities. The RRS will allow SSAs and QIDPs to create a ticket for people in need of technology solution consultation. Technology vendors will be able to see the requests and respond outside of the system directly to the requestors. This is an additional step at DODD to increase statewide efforts to increase the conversations about what technology can do for people with developmental disabilities.
The release of the RRS will be done in multiple phases. The RRS will be open to SSAs and technology vendors on Friday November 19, 2021. The ICF enhancement of the RRS will be released in December 2021. More information will be forthcoming on the ICF enhancement and training opportunities.
It is important to remember the use of this application is not mandatory but optional to expedite communication between SSAs, QIDPs, and technology vendors. Please direct questions about the rapid response system to firstname.lastname@example.org.
