Health System Home Visits - Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)

The NFP Program helps first-time mothers prepare for birth and gives them the support they need to become confident parents and strong women, while providing their newborns with the best possible start in life. NFP data has shown that there is a shift towards more women engaging in services earlier in the pregnancy within the 1st or 2nd trimester, which has led to better health outcomes for both mothers and their infants. In FY 2016-17, 93.5% of babies born in NFP were at a healthy weight. In FY 2017-18, 90% of babies born in NFP were born at a healthy rate, but the actual number of babies born at low or very low birth weight decreased.  For the mothers who engaged in the NFP Program during the respective screening time periods, the nurses were able to assess 100% of children with an infant health care assessment and ASQ-SE (Ages and Stages Questionnaire - Social Emotional) at 6, 12, 18, and 24 months in FY 2016-17 and again in FY 2017-18. ASQ is a screening tool that is used to assess developmental progress in children ages 0-6. 

Mental Health System of Care for Adults - San Mateo County Mental Health Assessment and Referral Team (SMART)

The SMART program is a behavioral health crisis response program operated by American Medical Response, which provides immediate assessment, management, transport, and referral as appropriate to individuals with behavioral emergencies in the pre-hospital setting. The system includes two SMART vehicles staffed from 7 AM to 9 PM seven days per week. In FY 2016-17, SMART responded to 76% of behavioral emergency calls, exceeding their target of 75%. In FY 2017-18, SMART has responded to 71% of behavioral emergency calls and is actively working to meet its target of 75%.
