Description of program/project

The MATCH (Making All The Children Healthy) program provides health care coordination for all children in foster care with Baltimore City Department of Social Services. MATCH also provides targeted medical/behavioral case management for those children identified as having intensive medical or behavioral health needs.

How are patients tracked? Specialized database for your program, Paper-based records, Planning on transitioning to eClinicalWorks
Provide special focus Use population specific teams to cover different types of cases
Program/Project strengths

MATCH health teams will determine if children’s health needs are being met by completing health case reviews at 3, 6, or 12 month intervals depending on the child’s level of health needs. The health case review will result in a health care plan/health passport that will be shared with workers and caregivers. The health care plan will identify if routine and chronic health needs are being met, if mental health treatment plans are appropriate, if there are outstanding health needs.

 

Program/Project challenges

Lack of shared database between MATCH program and case workers.
