  • Bruns, Eric J.


A crucial element of the system of care definition is the specification of its purpose, namely, "to ensure access to and availability of necessary services and supports." This article discusses the structures and processes that must be in place so that systems of care can acquire and respond to high-quality information about what services and supports are truly necessary.
