Clear Impact Scorecard And Turn the Curve (TTC) Training

Audience: County safety net department staff currently using RBA

When: Tuesday, October 18th from 9am-12pm

If you haven't already taken an RBA training, we encourage you to join us on October 11 before participating in this training. 

This training will introduce contract managers and support staff to the Clear Impact Scorecard as a new, simpler way to enter quarterly data.

  • Learn how to enter quarterly Performance Measure data directly into the Clear Impact Scorecard
  • Understand how to use the Clear Impact Scorecard as one of your tools to facilitate TTC conversations
  • Review and receive additional resources for facilitating TTC conversations
