Multi-institutional service system development for high risk infants



Multi-institutional service system development for high risk infants



Journal of Health & Social Policy 3(1): 77-90



This article describes the development of a county-wide multi-institutional follow-up system for a high risk population of children and their families and proposes guidelines for health service system building. The target population for this program known as the Alliance for Infants and based in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, was the very low birthweight infant and their families. Passage of legislation, P.L. 99-457, Education of the Handicapped Act Amendments of 1986, included provisions for Handicapped and At Risk Infants and Toddlers Program, which provided funds to states to develop and implement early intervention services such as the program described in this article.
