Informal Dispute Resolution (IDR) AFH Pilot Project
Beginning this fall, RCS will launch a pilot using a panel to conduct AFH IDR reviews.  Please visit the project webpage for further information and panel member recruitment.

IDR Process Survey (5 min)

Prior to beginning the pilot, we would like to get input from AFH providers on how you view the current IDR process.  By better understanding provider needs, we can improve the IDR process.  Please consider taking a few moments to participate. Take the survey here
