The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) is the primary technical assistance provider and coordinating entity for the three states — Maryland, Georgia, and Wyoming — awarded a CHIPRA Quality Demonstration grant by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in February 2010. The states will implement or expand the use of a Care Management Entity (CME) model to coordinate the services and supports needed by children and youth with serious behavioral health challenges involved in multiple systems and their families. The CME serves as the locus of accountability for these youth and families and is responsible for managing their care and outcomes across systems.

This webinar — fifth in the series — explored critical components of high quality wraparound and intensive care coordination within a CME serving children with complex challenges and their families, including:

  • Elements of a high-quality wraparound approach;
  • Qualities of effective care coordinators;
  • The importance of effective supervision;
  • Considerations for training, capacity-building and coaching; and
  • Statewide implementation of high quality-wraparound.
