  15. Provider Referrals Castellano

  16. Parent Survey • Majority of parents said they completed a questionnaire of child’s development (63%) and mental health (56%) some time in the last year • Less than ½ of those whose provider noted a concern were referred to HMG • Parents reported referrals most often to specialists (18%), followed by community services (10%), Early Intervention (7%) Castellano

  17. Parent Survey • Providers discussed next steps with ½ of those receiving mental health screening and 62% receiving developmental screening • 12% of families indicated they were receiving care coordination from their clinic • 7% said that they need someone to coordinate their child’s care Castellano

  18. Early Intervention Referrals since January, 2010 Castellano

  19. What We’ve Learned • Office flow very individualized, everyone has to invent their own wheel, would be hard to role out en masse • Written protocol an important step • State agency restructure of EI changed local contacts • Clinics in the midst of other projects (EMR) struggled • Helps for clinic and EI staff to meet each other • Some EI programs discouraging “too many” referrals – 2 way communication helps build trust on both sides • Previous clinic experience with QI important, or teach it to them Castellano
