Questions Going Forward?

What proportion of callers with stated concerns vs. none accept
screening offer and are screened?

Currently a small proportion of parents have stated (or previous)
concerns; is that changing over time?

Opportunities to reduce missed opportunities among clients with
stated concerns, e.g., increased warm transfers?

How is the intensity of service changing over time as measured by
the number of transactions required to connect families to services?

What children and families require more assistance; how can inreach be used to increase chances of finding them?
Questions Going Forward?

What factors are related to outcomes; differences between risk
factors or groups?

What is best way to measure connections for low risk children?

System and program improvements resulting from collaboration
with 211 Developmental Screening Project?

Opportunities for using technology and agreements to improve the
exchange of outcome information and consent, e.g., telephonic
signature, portals?

Additional opportunities to link DSP with related efforts (national and
local), e.g., research re: the value of screening, theory and practice
re: family strengthening and protective factors, and expanded
screening?
