With funding from the University of Maryland Institute for Innovation and Implementation and the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), the Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team at UW PBHJP has partnered with Social TecKnowledgy, Inc., to develop and test TMS-WrapLogic, a web-based data collection, management, and feedback software package design
In addition to federally-funded research, development, and technical assistance, the Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team at UW PBHJP conducts rigorous evaluation studies nationwide. Currently UW WERT is partnering with King County, Washington; Thurston and Mason Counties, Washington; and Broward Co., FL to evaluate raparound initiatives in those localities.
The Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team (WERT) seeks to improve the lives of children and their families by supporting quality assurance efforts nationally and conducting research on the implementation and outcomes of the Wraparound process.
PBHJP faculty and staff are focused on developing and testing methods for ensuring that states and jurisdictions implementing Wraparound care coordination for youth with complex needs are doing so in a way that actively integrates research-based clinical care. For example, PBHJP is now collaborating with PracticeWise LLC, to train wraparound care coordinators, family partners, and therapists in several sites in two states on the Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP) system, a coordinated method for delivering evidence-informed clinical care.
