US: Data-Sharing Efforts Aim to Improve Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice Outcomes
The Urban Edge – August 04, 2016
Because the data from the two systems were long kept separate, held separately between local and state agencies, it was a struggle for Rotramel and other non-profit workers in the field to know for sure what, exactly, a child was up against when they first encountered him. That’s part of the reason why Rotramel is now spearheading an effort to share data between agencies and non-profits working with juveniles that he hopes would build upon the recent success of an inter-agency data sharing system.
