C. For other “Community Long-term Care Supports”

You can hypertext link to the Hawaii’s Real Choice Partnership Project web-based SEP (single entry points) system. Its system is currently under construction and is in varying degrees of completion to provide its users with the following consumer-friendly features: (a) an interactive assessment process that will help consumers to identify and apply for services for which they are eligible; (b) an information system showing all long-term care services offered by the State , the counties, and private organizations, with open slots for many services listed according to geographical location; and (c) a quality assurance component that will identify service gaps by tracking service requests and will also allow consumers to periodically rate the services they receive.
