The Perfect Storm – The Convergence of Data, Process and Dialogue for System of Care Development

We're sorry, handouts are not available for this presentation.

Session Number: 16 Room: Salon C

Presentation Type: symposium

Chair: Jody Levison-Johnson Discussant:

Synopsis: Systems of Care are about effecting meaningful change which ultimately improves the lives of children and families across the country. Real change efforts must be grounded in a foundation that establishes the who, what, why and how for the initiative and must be adaptive and responsive to new information that is learned on the ground. Harnessing the power of the myriad data sources available and ensuring they are part of a well defined process and resulting dialogue creates the perfect storm for system of care development. This symposium will share the experience of two funded system of care communities, Monroe County, NY and the State of Oklahoma in ensuring that data, in all forms, is integrated into a well-established process that promotes discussion and discourse and ultimately continuous quality improvement (CQI) for developing systems of care. Additionally, specific examples from the CQI Progress Report will be introduced as opportunities to promote the use of these processes for dialogue and discovery for data captured as part of the National Evaluation of systems of care. The continued need for development of clear measures of transformation and system development will be highlighted as next steps for the evolving system of care movement.

Synopsis: Oklahoma has used the Systems of Care model to create the perfect storm for statewide systems change and wraparound expansion. This paper will share Oklahoma’s process for using data and dialogue to target and measure systems transformation. The identified outcomes, strategies and activities for defining and implementing systems reform, and state developed tools to measure both process and outcomes will be shared as examples of how to effectively quantify a community’s waves of change.
