“…although children who have been maltreated face immense challenges, they are incredibly resilient. We also know that even among children who do develop social-emotional, behavioral, and mental health problems, healing and recovery are possible. With the right tools and capacity, child welfare systems can identify the complex needs of children who have experienced maltreatment and deliver targeted, evidence-based services that help young people overcome the social and emotional impact of abuse and neglect. By addressing these needs, we increase the likelihood that children in foster care will exit to positive, permanent settings, with the skills and resources they need to be successful in life.”

Testimony of Bryan Samuels, Commissioner, Administration on Children, Youth and Families, to the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Subcommittee on Federal Financial Management, Government Information, Federal Services, and International Security, December 1, 2011.

Emerging Opportunity: NCINQ

  • The National Collaborative for Innovation in Quality Measurement (NCINQ) is one of 7 AHRQ/CMS Centers of Excellence in Pediatric Quality Measures Program.

  • NCINQ is developing performance measures in a variety of areas, including care for children in child welfare. Data sources may include administrative data, health insurance claims, medical records, and surveys.

  • NCINQ is actively seeking State input into these measures. States are invited to participate in focus groups to inform their development.

  • States are also invited to implement the measures using their data systems to test their feasibility, with support from NCINQ. Fall 2012 into 2013.
