2017:

Uncovering "Dark Data" in Child Welfare to Improve Outcomes

 

Data is everywhere in child welfare but how much of it is accessible? When workers don’t have the information they need, the children they serve are at risk for further trauma. In a worst-case scenario, there could be fatal consequences.

 

Implementing an approach to utilize “dark data” will help agencies improve outcomes by achieving permanency for youth, reducing social worker turnover and increasing case continuity, enabling agencies to implement new initiatives such as trauma-informed care, and understanding community trends impacting child maltreatment.

 

Learn how Fairfield County (OH) Child and Adult Protective Services is embracing “dark data” to make informed, confident safety decisions.

Improving Access, Cutting Red Tape: State Lessons from Work Support Strategies

 

Under the Work Support Strategies (WSS) initiative, six diverse states -- Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and South Carolina -- received funding and technical assistance to design, test, and implement more effective, streamlined, and integrated approaches to delivering key supports (including health coverage, nutrition benefits, and child care subsidies) for low-income working families.

 

In an April article from APHSA’s Policy and Practice, Elizabeth Lower-Basch of the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) highlighted lessons learned from WSS to describe how these states achieved large-scale improvement in families’ access to the full package of programs, using opportunities that exist today.

 

In this webinar, Ms. Lower-Basch will interview Greg Kunz from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and Judy Lawrence from the North Carolina Department of Social Services on how they designed, tested, and implemented more effective, streamlined, and integrated approaches to delivering key supports for low-income working families, and what advice they would share with other states undertaking this work.

Improving Outcomes & Reducing Costs: Leveraging Social Services in Value-Based Purchasing

 

In a time of often shrinking resources and increased demand for health and social services, it is critical that we operate systems that are flexible to changes in funding and are razor focused on outcomes for those we serve. Setting up models which are value-based, is one key lever to ensuring a strong business case for where we are investing our resources and the value to the general public- setting our systems up for success in changing times.

 

This National Collaborative & KPMG webinar shows participants  how value based purchasing (VBP) has been applied and the benefits to doing so through the delivery system reform work and research that both KPMG and Hennepin County’s Health & Human Services’ “Hennepin Health” program have been doing. KPMG has defined early market lessons learned in the path to value; and, Hennepin Health will join the conversation to share how VBP has been applied at the local level through integration of medical, behavioral health and social service interventions, resulting in significant improvements in outcomes for their residents and reductions in costs for the system.
