System of Care Practice Review (SOCPR) Reports
As part of its ongoing effort to evaluate the quality of care delivered to youth under 21 receiving MassHealth children’s behavioral health services, the state selected the System of Care Practice Review (SOCPR) process. The SOCPR, which was developed by the University of South Florida (USF), uses a multiple case study methodology to learn how important System of Care (SOC) values and principles are operationalized at the practice level, where youth and families have direct contact with service providers. A series of five regionally-based reviews of the care delivered by Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) and In-Home Therapy (IHT) providers was conducted in 2013/14. The reports from those reviews are posted below:
