The Children's Partnership (TCP) is seeking a seasoned professional with expertise in health information technology, health IT policy, and health home/care coordination issues to manage our initiative to improve outcomes for foster youth. TCP uses a combination of research, community-based demonstrations, policy development, and advocacy to promote the best use of health IT to improve access to and the provision of quality, coordinated, child- centered care. Within its health IT portfolio, TCP’s Electronic Foster Care Coordination (EFCC) Initiative promotes carefully planned electronic information exchange that enables effective care coordination and engages substitute care providers and older foster youth more effectively. A central feature of this initiative is the development of community-based demonstration projects in California and translating lessons learned into improved policies.
We are considering applicants in Santa Monica or the Bay Area/Sacramento.
