Data Collection Reporting (DCR)
The Data Collection Reporting (DCR) System is a client-level data system in which the Department of Health Care Services(DHCS) maintains County-submitted information about Full Service Partnership (FSP) clients. The DCR, together with DHCS’s Client & Service Information (CSI) System, is the data source for the MHSOAC Full Service Partnership Outcomes Dashboard. Data is provided monthly by County mental health programs (MHPs) and in these dashboards are summarized at the state level. The MHSOAC receives twice-annual updates of the DCR and CSI data from DHCS, which then are reflected in updates to the dashboard.
The MHSOAC Full Service Partnership outcomes dashboard provides information on the distribution of reasons that Full Service Partner clients ended their participation, statewide and by County. Disenrollment is when a County determines that a client is no longer enrolled in a Full Service Partnership (FSP).
Discontinuation Types include the client having met goals identified by the client, or other reasons, such as the client having moved out of the County’s jurisdiction, the client having died, Institutionalized or been incarcerated, the County or program having lost contact with the client, or other reasons.
Fiscal Year (FY)
Full Service Partnership (FSP)
This is a program category within Community Services and Supports (CSS). The FSP program philosophy is to do “whatever it takes” to help individuals achieve their goals, including recovery, by providing a full spectrum of community services and supports, as determined collaboratively with the partner-client. The services provided may include, but are not limited to, mental health treatment, housing, medical care, vocational training, and crisis support.
Key Event Tracking (KET)
This is a Full Service Partnership (FSP) administrative tracking report. A County is to submit a KET to the CA Department of Health Care Services Data Collection Reporting system (DCR) whenever any of several “key events” occur for a Full Service Partnership (FSP) client, including: changes to residential status, employment, emergency room visits, arrests, and discontinuance from the program. There is no limit to the number of KET forms that can be completed.
This is typically a value reported and/or seen in demographic values for cases where a partner/client reported a value “other than” the values presented in the intake form. Other is generally a reported field (missing data is reported as “Unknown”), the notable exception being for primary language where “Other” is the sum of all reported languages other than English, Spanish, and Unknown.
For disenrollment reasons “other” includes moved, deceased, and target criteria not met.
Relationship between the client or partner and the Full Services Partnership program in which they are enrolled. Unique to FSP programs are a low staff to client ratio, a 24/7 crisis availability and a team approach that is a partnership between mental health staff and consumers.
Protected Health Information (PHI)
Protected health information is individually identifiable information relating to the past, present, or future health status of individuals including, diagnoses, treatment information, medical test results, prescription information, medical identification numbers, and demographic information such as birth dates, gender, ethnicity, and contact and emergency contact information. Source: HIPAA Journal.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically.
State and federal law (i.e., HIPAA) require various entities to protect the private information of individuals receiving physical or mental health care. In presenting information about clients and client outcomes in the Transparency Suite, the MHSOAC has aggregated or suppressed display of information about small groups of individuals to minimize the likelihood that any individual can be reidentified from displayed information.
