Management of the Referral and Intake Process Print E-mail

Agencies must institute the mechanics of a referral process early on. The referral process needs to be appropriate and served by the EBP implemented, be it BSFT or FET. Insure that patient eligibility is accurately stated. Partner with relevant community systems to facilitate the services being provided by the EBP and that they reach the intended audience. Maintain the adequate funding streams necessary for successful implementation.

Appropriate management of the referral and intake processes insures that the EBP will result in treatment for a greater number of needy children, and that it will function as intended in perpetuity.
