Understanding Health Need and Services Received by Youth in Foster Care in Community Safety-Net Health Centers in Oregon.

J Health Care Poor Underserved 2021 ;32(2):783-798

Youth in foster care have significant unmet health needs. We assessed health needs and health service use among youth in foster care in Oregon using electronic health record data from 258 community health centers and Medicaid enrollment data from 2014-2016. We identified 2,140 youth in foster care and a matched comparison group of 6,304 youth from the same clinics who were not in foster care, and compared the groups on demographic characteristics, health needs, and health service use. Youth in foster care were significantly more likely to have at least one chronic health condition, at least one mental health condition, and at least one mental health service compared with controls. Youth in foster care were significantly less likely to have a primary care visit. Despite significant mental health needs among youth in foster care, few received mental health care; this lack was greater among African American and Hispanic youth.

Implementation lessons: Establishing a shared 'hub-and-spoke,' web-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) in an EHR shared by >600 community health centers incurred a myriad of challenges, which are summarized here to guide others seeking to use similar CDSS. Legal and compliance challenges involved ensuring secure data exchanges, determining which entity maintains data records, and deciding which data are sent to the CDSS. Technical challenges involved using lab data from multiple sources and improving the CDSS' cache routine performance in its new setting. Clinical implementation challenges involved identifying optimal strategies for generating data on CDSS use rates, modifying the CDSS functionality for obtaining clinician/staff feedback, and customizing the risk thresholds that trigger the CDSS for the new setting.
