December 9, 2015 — Exclusive Executive Web Briefing For Members Of The Leadership Council For Children’s Services
Children in the foster care system have very unique needs, including high levels of trauma, transiency, psychotropic medication use, and higher rates of hospitalization and readmissions. They are also subject to more “touch points,” interacting with foster families, biological and kinship relations, medical consenters, child protective services, judges, health care providers, child placing agencies, and advocacy groups, to name a few.
To meet these unique needs and better coordinate care for children in the foster care system, many provider organizations are turning to technology. From smartphone apps that help find placements for children, to e-communications for coordinating care, to remote service delivery via iPad – there are a number of new technologies that are improving care for this special population.
Join Paul Epp, Managing Director of Foster Care Technologies, LLC; Marquis Cabrera, Founder and CEO of Foster Skills; and Howard Shiffman, Senior Associate at OPEN MINDS for this exciting executive web briefing to hear how different technologies are influencing children’s services, and how these organizations have created innovative solutions to helping the foster care population.
The agenda for this exciting event will include:
- An overview of technology in child welfare
- Successful crowdsourcing efforts used in child welfare
- Innovative technologies, like MyHome and ECAP, influencing the child welfare system
