Behavioral Health Screening for Children with Well Visits
The first Clinical Topic Review was conducted in order to better understand how behavioral health screenings were occurring for children and adolescents during well visits prior to the implementation of a requirement that primary care providers perform behavioral health screening using a standardized behavioral health screening tool during every well child visit.

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:

Massachusetts Practice Review (MPR) Reports
Based on recommendations of the final summary System of Care Practice Review (SOCPR) report, the Commonwealth created the Massachusetts Practice Review (MPR) tool in order to align with the best practice Wraparound process implemented by MassHealth for CBHI services. The MPR Report of Pilot Reviews describes key protocol revisions and impressions from the MPR pilot test reviews, as well as plans for future MPR reviews using the new protocol and provider sampling procedures. System and provider quality improvement efforts as a result of SOCPR implementation are also briefly described. Reports from subsequent review cycles will be posted here.
This is the first part of a two-part report, which together will constitute the Commonwealth’s first annual Standardized Analysis. It is the intention of MassHealth to produce the Standardized Analysis each year, and also to produce each year a separate report on one or more CANS topics of special interest.
- Changes in Child Status During Behavioral Health Services in 2013: Data from the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths Tool (CANS), Part I, Item Level Analysis (Dec 2015)
This report presents an analysis of completed CANS assessments entered between June 2009 and July 2010 for children and youth receiving Intensive Care Coordination. The analysis is an initial look at the level of clinical need in youth served in ICC, as documented in initial CANS assessments.
Wraparound Fidelity (WFI) Summaries
Wraparound fidelity, as measured by the MA Wraparound Fidelity Assessment System (MA WFAS), is defined as the degree to which intensive care coordination teams adhere to the principles of quality wraparound and carry out the basic activities of facilitating a wraparound process. Each year Massachusetts assesses its fidelity to the Wraparound model.

file size 2MB
In an effort to better understand how Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) is working for children, youth and families, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) conducted a survey of parents and caregivers of children who have received ICC or “wrap-around” services. Four hundred families from across the state were randomly selected and invited to participate, with the online survey available from November 26, 2012 to December 15, 2012.
