Opportunities for Information Sharing to Enhance Health and Public Safety Outcomes
Justice-involved populations are more likely to suffer from chronic physical and behavioral health conditions. These conditions can jeopardize employment prospects and lead to reoffending and reincarceration. Information exchanges between the justice and health systems can help both criminal justice and community-based practitioners address these health conditions more effectively to improve outcomes. This report identifies 34 potential information exchanges and provides a blueprint for implementing effective justice-health information exchanges.
