Systems of Care Evaluation
Client: Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services
E-TEAM has served as the evaluator for the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse(ODMHSAS) Systems of Care since 2003. E-TEAM manages the national and local evaluation components of the SAMHSA CMHS federal grants—Phase VI Systems of Care, Phase XI Systems of Care, and the Healthy Transitions Initiative (HTI). E-TEAM provides feedback to ODMHSAS central management, site leadership and staff, families, and partners on whether goals and objectives are being achieved so that changes and adjustments can be made in practice. The evaluation also provides outcomes information for individual children, youth and families, as well as aggregated outcomes information for local sites and the state as a whole. E-TEAM designed and maintains a statewide evaluation data collection effort based on data collected through the Youth Information System (YIS) by the local OKSOC sites. Developed by E-TEAM, the YIS is a secure, web-based application which provides real-time access to evaluation and program monitoring data to state management, to individual site leadership, and to site wraparound facilitators. Data collected in the YIS are accessible on a continuous basis at the site and state levels.
