The study is a randomized controlled trial of a telephone-based care coordination system for families who experienced Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs). The investigators will conduct the study in partnership with Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine (KPSOM) and 2-1-1 Los Angeles County (211LA), part of a national network of 2-1-1 call centers covering 93% of the US population. The study will test the effectiveness of 211LA in increasing referrals and services for families who screen positive for ACEs.

Official Title

Testing a Scalable Model For ACEs-Related Care Navigation Via 211 Telephone-Based Services


The trial will enroll 200 children ages 0-11 years from the three FQHCs partner clinics, who screen positive for at least 1 ACE during their clinical encounter. The research study team will randomize children 1:1 into intervention (connection to 211LA for ACEs care coordination + usual care) or control (usual care alone).

Primary outcomes will include number of referrals to, eligibility for, and receipt of ACE-related services among intervention group participants compared to controls.

The investigators will measure these outcomes through parent reported data and 211LA data at baseline and 6 months after enrollment.

Expected findings include higher referral and service rates by six months after enrollment among intervention group participants.
