Improving U.S. Foster Care Service Allocation Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The goal of this MQP is to improve the allocation of services for the United States foster care system. The current foster care system is strained, which is in part due to the opioid epidemic that has impacted the nation as a whole. Our team has investigated the use of predictive and prescriptive analytics to improve the service allocation of the foster care system. Through careful estimation of the effects of various factors (including allocated services) on time in the system for each foster child, along with our proposed mechanism to reallocate such services, our results demonstrate that there is significant potential to improve the foster care system as a whole, and should be carefully considered for future implementation.
