A Clinical Information System for Foster Care in Israel
Benbenishty, R., & Oyserman, D. (1991). A clinical information system to monitor foster care in Israel. Child Welfare, 70, 229-242.
The article examines the viability of a clinical information system that responds to the information needs of practitioners on all levels of the foster care system in Israel. An analysis of the information needs of foster care practitioners, supervisors, administrators and policy makers was done to check the viability of the system. It was found that it is impossible for the system to respond to all needs of all involved in the foster care service. Social workers in direct contact with the child are the primary need for foster care providers.
