New Mexico Department of Health
Our mission is to promote health and wellness, improve health outcomes, and assure safety net services for all people in New Mexico.

Quality Initiatives

The Clinical Services Bureau collaborates with the DDSD Medical Director and other partners on several quality initiatives intended to improve health outcomes for persons with IDD.


Mortality Review

Since the late 1990’s DDSD has implemented a mortality review process.  The division reviews deaths for individuals who received a variety of DDSD-funded services.

For questions regarding mortality document delivery please email the Mortality Review Nurse Yolanda Herrera or call 505-841-5882.


Healthcare Coordination

The healthcare coordination toolkit is designed to assist individuals, guardians and teams in the proper coordination of healthcare for adults receiving DDW funded supports.
