Criminal Justice System Data Sharing to Improve Outcomes
Thursday, March 12, 2020, 10:00am – 11:00am
Strengthening the medication practices of jail staff is a key priority for Colorado, and recent legislation aimed to positively impact the quality of care provided within Colorado’s jail system. In 2017, The Colorado State General Assembly passed Senate Bill (SB) 17-019 calling for enhanced medication consistency solutions in county and municipal jails and a partnership with health information exchange. The Office of Behavioral Health and state HIEs are collaborating to achieve these efforts by providing jails with access to clinical data. Colorado hopes these collaborative efforts from state agencies, HIE and community providers will ensure that individuals with behavioral health disorders have access to a broad spectrum of effective medications as they transition between settings and service providers. The goal is to create positive health outcomes for this vulnerable population, reduce recidivism and create healthier communities.
