Continuum of Care Reform in California: How data sharing supports new treatment models

17th Annual National Behavioral Health Information Management Conference and Exposition

Thursday, April 27, 2017 – Day Two Concurrent Session

Continuum of Care Reform in California is a topic most behavioral health agencies are interested in as they navigate providing care to children and families across multiple service systems. Our presenters from California’s Department of Social Services and Department of Health Care Services will discuss how data sharing between county mental health plans and child welfare departments supports new treatment models for children and families in California. Counties are now required to provide Intensive Care Coordination and Intensive Home Based Services to children and their families who are Medi-Cal covered and meet medical necessity criteria for Specialty Mental Health Services. The presenters will discuss the importance of data sharing across previously separated service systems to implement the care coordination requirements of the initiative, and some approaches to how the data sharing can be accomplished. 

Our presenters for the session are:

  • Alicia Sandoval, Chief is from the Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau in the California Department of Social Services
  • Christina Hoerl, MSW, is a Manager in the Child Welfare Data Analysis Bureau in the California Department of Social Services
  • Linette Scott, MD, MPH is the Chief Medical Information Officer/Deputy Director of Information Management Division at the Department of CA Health Care Services
