The Data Evaluation and Technical Assistance (DAETA) team is funded by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to develop data systems, monitor clinical and program outcomes, and provide technical assistance to strengthen mental health services for children and adolescents in Oregon.
The team is currently partnering with OHA to monitor and evaluate three programs: Crisis and Transition Services (CATS), Intensive In-Home Behavioral Health Treatment (IIBHT), and Wraparound.
