460 Jail Case Study: Successful, Measurable Health Care Improvement*

Providing effective medical and mental health care is critical in corrections. This session will take the audience through a case study of a large jail operation that was struggling to provide care at the levels they expected. NCCHC Resources worked with the agency and medical team to identify challenges and opportunities for improvement. Learn about the collaborative effort that improved the quality of medical and mental health care and how long-term monitoring provided assurance that the new level of care would be maintained.
