Foster Care Coordination


Coordinated Care for Vulnerable Youth

Demonstration Projects:


The Children's Partnership is working to improve health and wellness outcomes for children living in foster care by enhancing care coordination among the multiple providers in health care, mental health, education, juvenile justice, and child welfare agencies who deliver services to these children. Our focus is on increasing both access to and sharing of information through leveraging existing technology assets and establishing new infrastructure. The goal is to link state- and county-level electronic systems while maintaining essential privacy protections and meeting security standards, such that each provider can have an understanding of the whole child -- both at a single point in time and over time -- leading to better decisions and more coordinated services.
