Wrap and Tech: Electronic Health Records, Measurement and Feedback Systems, and Other Supportive Online Technologies for Wraparound
Date: July 30, 2019
Time: 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
Presenters: Eric J. Bruns, Marianne Kellogg, and Taylor Berntson, University of Washington, NWI, and National Wraparound Implementation Center
Information technology has become a standard element of contemporary healthcare systems, often in the form of Electronic Health Records (EHRs), which are real-time, digital versions of clients’ health information, and measurement feedback systems. As an individualized and intensive method for coordinating care that requires management of many pieces of information (e.g., on team members, meeting schedules, plan of care elements such as priority needs and services, youth and family progress), the Wraparound process should be particularly amenable for support from such supportive technology. And yet, Wraparound also poses some unique challenges to selection and implementation of EHRs and measurement and feedback systems. This webinar will provide an introduction to the selection and implementation of EHRs and other web-based technologies in a Wraparound setting. It presents results and recommendations from a survey of Wraparound provider organizations and is aimed at providing guidance to organizations and programs selecting an EHR for the first time or transitioning to a new EHR system. The webinar will review steps and principles of EHR selection and implementation, supplemented by lessons learned from the field. It will also review some new innovations in fidelity measurement and feedback that is currently being developed by the National Wraparound Initiative and University of Washington Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team.
