Evolving Systems of Care with Total Clinical Outcomes Management
Lyons, John S.; Epstein, Richard A.; Jordan, Neil
Evaluation and Program Planning, v33 n1 p53-55 Feb 2010
The current article proposes that further specification of the system of care concept is required. Based on the assertions that the system of care concept (a) refers to an ideal as opposed to an observable phenomenon, and (b) is engaged in offering transformational experiences, the authors propose that the system of care definition must be expanded to include measurement and outcomes monitoring strategies that extend beyond current quality improvement initiatives. The authors propose that communication across multiple levels is essential if the goal of offering transformational experiences to children and families is to be realized.
