LITTLETON, Colo. (PRWEB) September 12, 2019
In July 2019 extendedReach completed a study that analyzed standard deficiencies over the past 36 months for foster care agencies in Texas. The study used audit data publicly available from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) website. Texas DFPS defines a "deficiency" as any failure to comply with a rule, including a minimum standard, a statute, a specific term of a permit, or a condition of evaluation, probation, or suspension. A standard deficiency is also referred to as a violation.
The data was then divided and assigned into two groups:
1. Agencies that use extendedReach (approximately 40% of Texas agencies)
2. Agencies that do not use extendedReach
The study concluded the following:
Agencies that use extendedReach:
- Reduce the total number of standard deficiencies by 77%
- Reduce the total number of medium-high/high deficiencies by 81%
Agencies that do not use extendedReach:
- Experience 3x more standard deficiencies than agencies that use extendedReach
- Experience 5x more severe deficiencies than agencies that use extendedReach
