Subject:use of web cams in child welfare

A regional administrator is interested using web cams to stay better connected with children in various placement settings. The logic is that web cams will save money (reduced travel costs) and increase the frequency of contact between children and caseworkers. I was wondering if there is any literature on the use of web cams in child welfare casework? Is this a practice that other states are experimenting with?
