490 Transitional Health Care: Using a Holistic Model to Address Social Determinants of Health upon Release*

Historically, the Indiana Department of Correction Parole Services used a compliance-based model to address violations relating to substance use disorder, mental health, and physical health concerns with their formerly incarcerated clients. The IDOC Transitional Healthcare Team under IDOC's medical division and Centurion Health implemented a holistic approach and expanded access to care in the community to reduce Parole Services' justice responses to these challenges. Current IDOC parole violation data demonstrate a significant decrease in returns to the Indiana Department of Correction by emphasizing care continuity and barriers related to social determinants of health.
