Clinical Profile of Children with Severe Emotional Disorders
This Clinical Profile of Children with Severe Emotional Disorders is designed to: (1) describe characteristics and unique needs of children with serious emotional disturbances; (2) identify patterns and trends in service utilization and cost; and (3) identify opportunities for quality improvement and the potential impact of quality improvement efforts through predictive modeling. A clinical expert panel will be engaged to define six evidence-based protocols for psychosocial treatment and pharmacotherapy and compare these to observed service patterns. Four of the six protocols will be targeted to children ages 0-6.
The results of this study will be used as part of the PPN to inform a needs assessment and gap analysis of the Children’s Mental Health Learning Collaborative to support physician practice transformation and delivery of evidence based care for children with mental health conditions. The metrics developed by this project will be used in the development of the Data Infrastructure for the Children’s Mental Health Learning Collaborative.
