Complaints Handling – A new online solution for NDIS services

 A new online solution for NDIS services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a significant reform to how people with disabilities access support. It provides more choice and control over services as well as greater opportunities for people to participate in the community, including through employment.

However, like any big change, there can be challenges along the way when it comes to managing complaints, particularly given that some people may not understand the difference between their rights under the NDIS and other issues that arise while receiving support services.

Complaints Handling- A new online solution for NDIS services

Complaints handling is a difficult and time-consuming process. It requires staff to contact clients, gather information, compile documentation and provide feedback. This can be time-consuming for both the NDIS provider and the client.

NDIS Complaints Management Online is a new online tool that simplifies the process of handling and resolving complaints, which will help providers maintain the standards and quality of their support services.

This system allows participants to report an issue or concern directly to the NDIS, instead of having to go through their provider first. The NDIS can then investigate the claim and resolve it quickly without any interference from other parties involved in providing services under this scheme.

The new system is designed to make it easier for people with disabilities and their families to raise issues about the quality of their support and services, by giving them access to self-help tools that will guide them through the process. It also allows them to track the progress of their complaint at each step in the process, from lodging it with their provider through to resolution by either an agreed resolution or a formal investigation by NDIA.

The new system replaces all existing internal processes for handling complaints about NDIS providers, including those made directly via email, phone calls or paper forms. So all complaints must now be submitted via this new platform if they are going forward as formal complaints under Section 37(1)(b) of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (Act).

Feedback is critical in maintaining positive relationships between providers and participants

Providers need to know what their clients think of them and the services they provide. Providers also need to know where they are doing well, and where they can improve. This is essential if providers are going to meet the needs of their clients and make sure that everyone receives high-quality NDIS support.

It is important for participants to feel comfortable giving feedback about their NDIS experience as this will help providers understand how well they are meeting participant needs.

Participant feedback helps providers:

  • Know what participants think about the service being provided.
  • Understand where improvements can be made.
  • Compare themselves with other providers in the area.
  • Identify new opportunities for growth or development.

Feedback helps service providers to improve and deliver better outcomes for their clients

It’s easy to use and provides a comprehensive view of all data relating to complaints, including:

  • The number of times a client has complained about an NDIS provider or service in the past 12 months.
  • The number of times each provider has been complained about over that period.
  • A list of all current complaints against a particular provider – including their status (open/closed) and whether they have been escalated for resolution by another party like NDIA or Centrelink.
