Live Webinar: Why Corrections-to-Health Information Sharing Is Critical to Pandemic Response
Improve Information-Sharing Using the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) Program
Now is the time for criminal justice agencies to improve the sharing of information between corrections and health. As part of the recent Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Stimulas (CARES) Act, $850 million is set aside in a non-competitive grant that can be spent, in part, on helping to enable the exchange of health information between the corrections and healthcare systems to mitigate the current impact of COVID-19 on communities and to bolster their ability to respond to future public health threats. This includes both local jails and state correctional facilities.
During this upcoming webinar we’ll discuss who’s eligible to apply for the CSEF Program, allowable expenses, the timeline and application process, as well as outline use cases of how information-sharing can help criminal justice agencies address the medical needs of inmates of both local jails or detention centers and state correctional facilities. Takeaways from the webinar include the role information-sharing can plan in:
- Managing and monitoring inmate population health
- Maintaining electronic health records during in-custody stays
- Diagnostic reporting from the corrections system to state and local health departments
- Continuity-of-care planning upon reentry into the community
