Wraparound Implementation Support
The Texas Center provides individualized implementation support for organizations interested in fully implementing Wraparound. Implementation support includes workplace development (e.g. on-site and virtual coaching for supervisors to build skill in Wraparound Facilitators), sustainability planning, guidance on the use of data for continuous quality improvement (CQI), and assistance in the development of a local business plan. This includes support around the effective use of Wraparound Practice Improvement Tools (WPITS). Rates for implementation and coaching support are based on the specific needs and capacities of organizations interested in implementing the model.
Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI)
The Texas Center, in collaboration with the HHSC YES Waiver Team, has developed and organizational assessment protocol to provide comprehensive evaluation of organizational health and implementation of the YES Waiver. The assessment includes a system for assessing the quality and fidelity of Wraparound implementation across the state. The YES Organizational Assessment will evaluate how well an organization is applying Wraparound principles and protocols known to be conducive to high quality, high fidelity Wraparound.
Based on the Wraparound Implementation and Practice Quality Standards (Coldiron et. al, 2016), the assessment measures how organizations perform in five major categories:
- Organizational readiness
- Wraparound supervision
- Wraparound care coordination/facilitation
The results of the assessment inform individualized technical assistance for each of the organizations implementing the YES Waiver. Results will also inform the YES Waiver team at HHSC as the state continues to evaluate strategies to enhance the program.
