Arizona’s Children’s System of Care Practice Review: Fiscal Year 2010 Statewide Report
The System of Care Practice Review (SOCPR) was implemented in FY2010 as the Arizona Department of Health Services/Division of Behavioral Health Services’ (ADHS/DBHS) practice review method of choice in Arizona. It was developed at the University of South Florida (USF) by Dr. Mario Hernandez, Ph.D.
Research has demonstrated high inter-rater reliability in the use of the tool, which is based on face to face interviews with multiple informants as well as file/record reviews (Hernandez et al., 2001). A total of 205 reviews were conducted across Arizona in FY2010.
The SOCPR uses a case study methodology informed by caregivers, youth, formal providers, informal supports, and extant documents related to service planning and provision. The SOCPR tool itself is comprised of 4 domains and 13 sub-domains:
- Child-Centered, Family-Focused (CCFF)
- Individualized, Full Participation, and Case Management
- Community Based (CB)
- Early Intervention, Access to Services, Minimal Restrictiveness, and Integration and Coordination
- Culturally Competent (CC)
- Awareness, Sensitivity and Responsiveness, Agency Culture, and Informal Supports
- Impact (IMP)
- Improvement and Appropriateness.
