Service Integration The Integration Continuum Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC) September 2018 Presenters Lou Adams Training and TA Manager, WINTAC [email protected] Doug Keast Project Director, WINTAC [email protected] Meera Adya, PhD Senior Director of Research and Evaluation, WINTAC [email protected] 6 Learning Objectives 1.

Develop a greater understanding of integrating services between Vocational Rehabilitation and other Core Programs in the American Job Center - Workforce System. 2. Understand the basic processes and examples of service and system integration. 3. Understand the concept of an Integration Continuum and be able to define each stage: Isolation, Communication, Coordination, Collaboration and Integration. 4. Recognize the differences in each stage using a common problem statement and the resultant approach and impact. 5. Understand the online Integration Self-Assessment and how they can impact the movement towards integration. 6. Identify how integrative service goals can be created by partners using the Group Assessment and Planning Process

7 What is Service Integration? Service integration involves: A combination of strategies to align and simplify access to client services and supports with the goal of providing the best experience possible. Implementation of a distinctive mix of partner agencies, strategies and processes based on the resources available, the needs of the clients served and WIOA requirements. The introduction of innovative practices into Core Programs service systems which have a positive impact on: o Service delivery policies and procedures o Management information systems o Performance management systems 8 Benefits of Integrated Service Delivery Economize scarce resources Enhance job seeker/claimant/customer outcomes Provide effective services to employers

Boost data availability Improve performance accountability 9 The Concept of Continuum Not every system or process can change at the same time. Core partners will be at different stages of the continuum at different times. It is important to recognize the stages of the interaction between the core partners so you can determine where you are at present, and develop plans to move to the next stage. Some plan elements will be easier to implement than others. Core partners may not be able to move at the same pace. 10 Self-Assessment How does self-assessment help us? Provides an environmental scan Identifies which partnerships might be strategically strengthened Meets agency operational objectives Meets customer objectives Establishes a basis for evaluating agency progress 11 Are We Collaborating? Levels of Collaboration

Created by WINTAC based on Stages of Integration; Burt and Spellman 2007 12 Isolation Each agency and program has its own separate career service options. Agencies and programs do not regularly inform partners of those services. Each separate agency and program promotes services separately to community. 13 Communication Core agencies talk to each other, but they have no planned or required contact.

Contact is intermittent. Some information is shared, but no formal information or data sharing plan exists. 14 Coordination Core partners work together at all levels (from management to direct service) to align services, but there is no formal structure to their interaction. It is done on a case-by-case basis. 15 Collaboration Core agencies agree to work together for mutual benefit.

The relationship is based on consistent communication and coordination. Partners agree they can best achieve goals by working together and using the strengths and expertise of each partner to accomplish common goals. 16 Integration Core agencies agree to work together to achieve common goals and create an organizational structure to share information, data and resources to accomplish mutually agreed upon outcomes as an integrated system. 17 Integration Continuum Self-Assessment This online self-assessment looks at your level of connectivity to other American Job Center (AJC) One-Stop Partners. There is no right or wrong level except Isolation, the desire is to do what best serves your customers and the customers of the American Job Center system. The intent is to provide a dashboard of those Partners with whom you are connected as well as your current level of connectivity. It can be done every year to track levels of partnerships with

various AJC Partners. 18 Online Self-Assessment Screen Shots This is my agency Isolated Communicating Coordinating Collaborating Integrated Not familiar with this Title I Adults o o o

Outreach and Intake ISOLATION COMMUNICATION COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION Each agency promotes services separately to community. Share written material between staff. Develop joint brochure/flyer that identifies all partner agencies in the AJC and the services they provide.

Partners establish a central contact point at the AJC that can connect customers to each of the separate partner agencies. Partners work together to establish outreach materials and resource fairs. Share contact information of a representative from each agency. Agency orientations and intake processes are separate but coordinated to maximize customer flow of service. This may include the timing, sequence of orientations and triage processes of customers being referred to other agency orientation and/or intake processes. Together, the AJC agencies promote and host resource fairs

in the community and participate in rapid response events for plant closings, and provide information regarding how to access each of the separate partner agencies. AJC services identified as functional as opposed to by agency. Efforts to connect to community are planned strategically by teams representing the expertise of all partner service programs. Assessments ISOLATION COMMUNICATION COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION

Each agency has its own separate assessment process; does not regularly inform partners of assessment options. Inform partners of available assessments. Other partner staff may refer individuals with disabilities to the Vocational Rehabilitation program for specialized assessments and services. Staff may meet cross-agency with the customer to go over assessment results with individuals who are co-enrolled in other services as with AJC, Special Education, etc.

Agencies participate in assessment strategies, tools and processes with coenrolled consumers as a cross-agency assessment team for that consumer. Career Services ISOLATION COMMUNICATION COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION Each agency has its own separate career service options; does not regularly inform partners of those services.

Inform partners of available career services (resume workshops, etc.). Some individuals in VR-eligible individuals with disabilities receive career services for other AJC programs. Staff may meet cross-agency with customer to develop their specific employment plans, including the utilization of career services within those plans for those individuals who are co-enrolled. Core Programs work together to align services in their respective employment plans to better serve those individuals who are co-enrolled between agencies. Case Management ISOLATION

COMMUNICATION Each agency Seek updates on operates its status with other own separate case programs. management system with no regular communication with other partners. COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION Some staff share information about specific customers. Staff may meet cross-agency with customer to provide joint

case management services for those individuals who are coenrolled. Staff develop and utilize cross-agency case management practice as a normal practice for all those consumers who are coenrolled. Career Pathways ISOLATION COMMUNICATION No cohesive, integrated agency strategy for career pathways. Counselors are not coordinating career pathways goals. LMI or business engagement efforts are does not include individuals with disabilities.

Cross agency, communication exists at the leadership level as it relates to development and updates of the WIOA State Plan. Counselors communicate with training entities and partners as it relates to funding and planning for skill and credential attainment only COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION Staff are coordinating career fairs and efforts for business and sector outreach. Staff share information concerning plan progress about specific customers

Shared decision-making and accountability exists within leadership with procedures in place for all agency staff. Joint planning, resource leveraging and braided funding with clear plan coordination and role responsibility exists. Counselors partner through integrated resource teams and continuum of service delivery beyond VR exit is included. Leadership vision and strategy is operational. All intake, evaluation assessment and plan development is conducted and implemented in a fully cohesive way inclusive of all relevant partners. All partners are invested in collective outcome and continuous improvement Business Services ISOLATION

COMMUNICATION COORDINATION COLLABORATION INTEGRATION Each placement specialist in each agency makes his/her own business connections; no sharing of business information between agencies beyond the information generated and entered into the Job Centers search engine by the Wagner Peyser business representatives.

Placement Specialists meet once a month for coffee and discuss business development strategies; partners share information on their programs, job fairs and similar events. Placement Specialists and Business Associates meet every Thursday at 3:30 P.M. and share the skill needs of their business contacts for the purpose of meeting the business needs and sharing placement opportunities. Business Service Specialists meet regularly and plan business events together, such as Job Fairs. They host a business event once a quarter to gain information on the needs of specific business

sectors, and to provide information or training on topics identified as areas of interest by those business sectors. Partner agencies still approach businesses separately, but share information with each other to meet business needs. Cross-Agency Business Services Team is created and sets the strategy for business engagement. Vocational Rehabilitation and Title I Adult Services coordinate outreach to Veterans with disabilities. Meeting Agenda Introductions WIOA Vision: State, Regional and/or Local Objectives Integration Continuum and Major Processes Examples Integration Continuum Assessment (Small Groups) Priority Areas Discussion (Small Groups) Each group identifies 2-3 areas they would like to work on locally this year.
