CFAC Update: New Structure Began July 1, 2019

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — August 06, 2019
Cardinal Innovations Healthcare’s Consumer and Family Advisory Committee (CFAC) has completed the consolidation of the Local and Executive CFAC groups into the following four Regional CFACs with a Steering Committee.

Regional CFAC Alignment:
  • Five County (Franklin, Granville, Halifax, Vance, Warren)
  • Central: (Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, Orange, Person)
  • Southern: (Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Stanly, Union)
  • Triad: (Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Rockingham, Stokes)
In addition to the newly aligned Regional CFACs, Cardinal Innovations’ CFAC has adopted new bylaws/addendums posted here. CFAC continues efforts to finalize the Relational Agreement between Cardinal Innovations and the CFAC, led by efforts of Cardinal Innovations’ newly formed Steering Committee as part of their scope and responsibility. 

The CFAC Steering Committee includes three members from each Regional CFAC, representing each of Cardinal Innovations’ target populations of mental health, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and substance use disorders (MH/IDD/SUD). The group meets quarterly (starting in August) from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month. The next meeting will be November 7.

The state created CFACs to provide a way for members and family members to be actively involved in the decision making process and to provide input on initiatives that improve the health and wellness of Cardinal Innovations’ members.

The CFACs are self-governing groups that have a choice to receive administrative support from the Cardinal Innovations staff. CFAC members are adult volunteers aged 18 and older who receive services for MH/IDD/SUD or are family members of those receiving services.
