Systems of Care for County and State Programs

During the past two decades, there has been an increasing emphasis on the development of community-based, integrated systems of care to serve adults and children with serious emotional disturbances and their families. Adults and children with serious emotional disturbances have a wide range of needs; thus, their services should be individualized, or tailored to the strength and needs of the adult or child and family. These personalized service plans, jointly developed and monitored by the family or caregivers and the involved agencies, is a major underpinning of an integrated system of care.  State and County governments need to give considerable attention to individualized planning which may include developing or expanding both traditional mental health services as well as non-medical related services. 

The InfoMC Systems of Care technology solution allows state and county governments to determine individualized care plans, select the best resources that provide relevant and unique services through proper placement in the community, provide decision support tools for care managers, and evaluate their performance.  The emphasis of this technology solution is on the best approach state and county governments should take and gives them the autonomy to coordinate funding across agencies, deploy multiple programs effectively, establish appropriate provider networks and allow for family members and care givers to have a central role in selecting resources and making vital decisions about their care.
