Allegheny HealthChoices, Inc., 2010
This report details how, since 1999, financial and quality oversight activities related to behavioral health care in Allegheny County have expanded from a focus on meeting minimum requirements for managed care operations to a focus on improving access, quality and allocation of resources while monitoring efforts to prevent and detect fraud, waste and abuse of Medicaid funds.

The RAND Health project "Helping Families Raise Healthy Children" of Allegheny County seeks to improve identification and services for families who have a risk of experiencing caregiver depression and early childhood developmental delays.
