Trumbull County Children Services believes that this rule entering the clearance process provides an opportune time to shift the CPOE review towards a more data-driven approach and less reliant on case reviews. Over time, data reports through SACWIS, ROM, and BIC have become more available and are a largely untapped resource for CQI initiatives at the local level. In addition, the current case review component for most counties is not of sufficient size to be statistically valid, raising concerns about the value of case reviews in this manner. We suggest focusing the CPOE review on one or two key issues that can “move the needle”, such as quality of home visits, and review a wider range of cases on those limited issues. In other words, develop a review that is limited in scope but broad in the number of cases reviewed for those issues. To this end, we suggest adding the following as a new section (E) (3) (a): If the CPOE review process includes a review of the PCSA’s case records, a statistically valid sampling technique with a minimum 95% Confidence Level and a 10% Confidence Interval shall be used.
