PA: Allegheny County DHS using algorithm to assist in child welfare screening
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – April 09, 2017
Of the thousands of calls to the state’s and Allegheny County’s child protection hotlines, alleging potential child neglect, call screeners often have to make life-altering decisions without much information. Without the resources to investigate every single call, which ones should be prioritized? While all calls alleging physical or sexual abuse are investigated, other allegations, such as those pertaining to unsafe or unsanitary living conditions, can be harder to gauge.
