Families experience a wide range of needs that affect their overall health and well-being. However, public health, healthcare, and social service systems often operate in siloes, leading to ineffective collaboration and unnecessary barriers for families. To address this challenge, Kansas Title V supports the use a web-based referral tool, the Integrated Referral and Intake System (IRIS), paired with Cultivating Connections, a community-centered approach for implementing and sustaining a coordinated referral network. This local approach to developing collaborative networks across the state aims to improve referral outcomes and access to the multi-sector services parents and children need for healthy development throughout their life and across generations.
