A decision would be needed about the key terminology of cross-sector coordination and who coordination is for. Cross-sector servicecoordination, case management and a host of other related terms appear in the literature and the Australian services system. They are ‘read’ differently by different groups and in different settings; for instance, to some ‘case management’ may sound as if the person is a ‘case’ to be ‘managed’ rather than a person for whom services and systems need better coordination. These terms nevertheless have many of the same features and components and represent services and professionals with similar goals and the same respect for people with disability. Equally there is the question of who are the people with ‘high and complex needs’ for whom services need to be coordinated? There is some discussion of what is meant by ‘high and complex needs’ in Section 1, and decisions on these terms could affect the numbers significantly. Is this a service for a relatively small group of people with unusually high and complex needs—at risk (say) of ongoing institutionalisation, or of being left ‘stranded’ in unacceptable conditions and without access to essential services from another sector (e.g., health, justice). The group defined in Section 1 are a minority of people, whose life
Coordination can improve the performance of individual transportation providers as well as the overall mobility within the region. A regional coordinated service can achieve economies of scale in many areas by consolidating client intake, reservations, scheduling, and dispatching functions. Joint purchase of maintenance services, fuel, and items like scheduling software can also save money. Greater efficiency can stretch the limited funding and personnel resources available to the agencies in the region in a number of ways:
Some of the barriers to streamlining and coordination in children’s services have been attributed to hospital’s and community professionals lack of adequate communication; lack of funding for specialist equipment; inexperienced community staff; complicated legal liability issues; and social exclusion for parents who are trying to manage all these aspects of care (Dale and Godsman, 2000; Watson et al, 2002). Services found to be excelling involved the support of health commissioners and primary care trusts, linked with local authority education and social services (Watson et al, 2002; Bachmann et al, 2009; Law et al, 2011; Pratt et al, 2012; Brooks et al, 2013). A combination of a strong pathway, and clearly defined roles, have been suggested as a method of strengthening emotional resilience of staff while adopting holistic models of practice to support coordination (Dale and Godsman, 2000; Elias et al, 2012). Resources have to be on a continuum, across all ages and, planning any transition should be within the context of the family (Tait, 2002; Hewitt-Taylor, 2012).
emotional disturbance have available to them, with parent permission, the opportunity for a coordinated services plan. The DOE/AHS Interagency Agreement requires individualized coordination for special education eligible children and youth who are also eligible for servicecoordination or specific services through AHS and whose parents give permission for such coordination to take place. While there is a right to coordination of services, every eligible child or youth may not need to have a written and formalized coordinated services plan. Those who have the need are entitled to this coordination of services.
Several intervention components are found to be essen- tial for facilitating RTW, including centralized coordination of the employees RTW, formal individual psychological and occupational interventions, workplace-based interven- tions, work accommodations, contact between various stakeholders and interventions to foster concerted action [8, 11, 12]. Facilitation of RTW is hence a complex practice facing several obstacles. One strategy to overcome chal- lenges with integrated care has been to provide a coordin- ator . Provision of a coordinator has been positively associated with time to RTW in occupational rehabilitation [11, 13–16], and is described as one of the core compo- nents for successful return to work . However, a recent review concluded that evidence does not support that RTW-coordination programs that provide a RTW- coordinator promote RTW . The evidence in the review is reported to be of low quality, and more compre- hensive studies focusing on sustainable RTW and the workplace are therefore recommended . In contrast, another review concluded that there is strong evidence for recommending servicecoordination (ex. RTW plans, case management) in multiple component RTW-models to- gether with health-focused and work modification compo- nents . RTW is not only an aim for the individual due to health, social and economic reasons, but also for society. The costs of sickness absence and disability are consider- able, and RTW-coordination is reported among cost- effective RTW-intervention components [19–21]. Even though there is an ongoing debate on the effect of RTW- coordination and provision of a RTW-coordinator, there is
Information collected through questionnaires and interviews with local field care managers and CMPA staff also revealed several other factors that may impact care implementation activities. Local field care managers appear to have limited responsi- bility and decision-making ability regarding what services are provided. Rather, their role is to collect information and make recommendations to the CMPAs, which then decide how much service will be provided and for how long. Level of reimbursement for local field care managers’ time also appeared to be a factor. Local field care managers for one CMPA are paid a capitated monthly fee, regardless of how much assistance their clients required. This may have had a limiting effect on the amount of implementation and servicecoordination actually provided. One care manager’s comment in this regard is illustrative: “There have been some cases where I thought it was important to see the client more than once, and if I happened to be in their area, I might drop by to talk to them. But I do this on my own time since I don’t really get paid for it.”
PerformCare Page 2 C. The CSOC Assessment and other relevant information indicate that the child/youth needs care management provided by a CMO requiring servicecoordination and linkages such as with specialized behavioral health services or medication management services, and coordination with Child Study Teams, other school personnel, Division of Child Protection & Permanency (DCP&P) or Division of Adult Protective Services, Juvenile Detention, and or medical health services;
The case management administrator is like the coach or quarterback in a football game. The administrator, like the quarterback, knows the plays and the overall game plan and directs the other players specifically, ie, the point of care case managers, to provide a system of outcomes management. The physician and health care providers like assistant coaches participate in the development of the game plan and yet it is the quarterback that executes the plan with the other players. Effective outcome assessments are dependent on case manag- ers doing their job at both levels of case management practice. However, if the case management function is not supported and respected both outcome assessment and management are difficult, if not impossible, in any organization. It is critical that the case management administrator not only monitors the outcomes associated with the quality of care but also monitors the qualities and outcomes of the case management system itself. The case management administrator should not only seek credentialing for his/her own practice they should also seek accreditation for the entire case management service.
Besides the fixed operation costs, each SCFS user has to pay for its usage (executed operations and storage space) of the file system. Figure 11(b) presents the cost of reading a file (open for read, read whole file and close) and writing a file (open for write, write the whole file, close) in SCFS-CoC and SCFS-AWS (S3FS and S3QL will have similar costs). The cost of reading a file is the only one that depends on the size of data, since providers charge around $0.12 per GB of outbound traffic, while in- bound traffic is free. Besides that, there is also the cost of the getMetadata operation, used for cache valida- tion, which is 11.32 microdollars (µ$). This corresponds to the total cost of reading a cached file. The cost of writ- ing is composed by metadata and lock service operations (see Figure 4), since inbound traffic is free. Notice that the design of SCFS exploits these two points: unmodified data is read locally and always written to the cloud for
The desired performance of FUNC1 is guaranteed by its implementation (HOW1) as the explicit coordination of “smaller” functions. In some way, WHAT1 is decomposed into a set of WHAT2x. WHY0 is decomposed into a set of WHY1x, and FUNC1 is decomposed into a set of FUNC2x. They are all coordinated together. In the illustration below, the coordination is trivial, but in real cases it may be rather complex (e.g. an interaction of activities carried out by several
In terms of the intervention regimes incorporated, studies were generally observed to have a wide range of variation, by introducing more traditional approaches such as subjecting the DCD participants in conventional coordination training and regular play activities (Magalhaes et al., 2011); traditional physical therapy and occupational therapy (Smits-Engelsman et al., 2012); and in task-oriented intervention and process-oriented therapies (Miyahara et al., 1996; Smits-Engelsman et al., 2012; Hillier et al., 2007). Additionally, few researchers cited numerous studies carried out incorporating motor coordination activities; physical activity and movement skills and General vs SI vs Specific Skills training (Wilson et al., 2012; Pless & Carlsson, 2000 and Magalhaes et al., 2011), whereas others cited introduction of more structured and systematic intervention protocols, such as SIT vs PMT vs nil/tutoring; CO-OP vs CTA (Kaplan et al., 1993; Hillier et al., 2007).
Prior to the regulatory change introduced in 2001, the EMS provision was under-regulated, lacking clear legal and administrative mechanisms and administered on an ad-hoc basis. The 1994 Health Organization Act contained only one sentence on emergency care stating that it was financed from the state budget. There were no provisions in the law on the responsibility for organising the emergency medical service. The county governors, without any guiding framework for conducting the procedures, were responsible for contracting with EMS providers, while the Ministry of Social Affairs made decisions on the resource allocation. In most of the contracts, the terms and conditions of service delivery were vaguely specified, and in some cases the service was delivered without any written agreement. The location and make-up of the emergency crews was not based on any systematic analysis, but on the legacy of the previous years. During this period, EMS was financed from different central government sources, but as the allocations fell short in covering all costs, the owners of the EMS providers voluntarily covered part of the costs.
The functions of the Department include, improving service delivery in the coordination and management of Human Resource Training and Development, drawing up a National Human Resource Development Plan, and co-ordinating the Public Sector response to HIV/AIDS.
choices, prompt union of stockrooms and so forth which could enable coordination to achieve its potential regarding administration and development. So it will be awesome blast for the coordination part which is prompting quickened monetary development.
