501 Connecting With the Community: Data-Sharing Arrangements for Better Handoffs*

In 2020, the California prison system revolutionized the way it provides substance use treatment. The new approach requires close communication with state parole and county probation partners to help patients safely transition to the community after release, facilitated through a real-time information-sharing portal. This presentation describes the new portal, how data is used, and plans to expand the exchange of data with county and state agencies. Data sharing also may help track patient outcomes in the future.

Educational Objectives:

Describe the technologies used to create the information-sharing portal between the CDCR and California's 58 counties

Identify four types of data shared through the CDCR's prerelease registries

Analyze data-sharing opportunities at the state level that could be used to improve future services

Level: Basic
