Correctional Health Care Services

Correctional Health System Assessments & Performance Improvement

We have deep experience in conducting comprehensive assessments of the medical and mental health care services provided by some of the nation’s largest and most complicated correctional facilities and health systems. Using objective criteria, we will identify the areas in which your facility is doing well and develop data-driven solutions for areas where improvement is needed. More>>

Prison & Jail Suicide Prevention Programs

Opioid Crisis Support

We support assessments of opioid treatment programs at all stages of maturity across a wide variety of settings, from rural medically underserved areas to large urban community hubs. We train health experts on options for medication-assisted treatment, and we maintain trusted long-term partnerships with stakeholders, including local detention services, state prisons, treatment providers, and the federal government.   More>>

Active Health Services Contract Management & Monitoring

Using the Performance Analysis and Support System (PASS), our consultants act as liaisons between your care providers and correctional leaders to help you successfully navigate the complexities of contractual relationships and correctional health care services. Through flexible and future-focused partnerships, we provide comprehensive clinical and fiscal support and oversight, coordinating and monitoring performance while ensuring compliance with contract terms and nationally accepted NCCHC health care standards. The result? Your facility will mitigate a wide array of correctional health care risks, minimize the possibility of cost- and time-intensive litigation, and decrease undesirable outcomes for incarcerated individuals in your care.  More>>

In-Custody Death Investigations

RFP/RFQ Development & Support

Our team supports agencies and correctional facilities in creating RFPs/RFQs that contain carefully crafted, accurate, and comprehensive information for prospective health care vendors — which, in turn, enables contractors to propose an appropriate plan for meeting your correctional health care goals, delivering quality services, and setting appropriate prices.

Mental Health Care Services

Untreated mental health conditions, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders have increased the acuity of incoming arrestees, which increases the risk of critical incidents and adverse outcomes.  Correctional health care systems that are proactive in the identification of patient needs, and their delivery of mental health services, tend to provide effective, efficient, and timely care. NCCHC Resources works with your facility to address needs and provide solutions to your challenges.  More >>


Health Care Space Design

The physical space that is used to provide health services is a critical component of high-quality care. Through detailed examination, we assess overall clinic and housing design, patient flow, staff workstations, and equipment placement, with special attention paid to suicide prevention measures.

During that time, NCCHC Resources has been an engaging and collaborative partner, challenging us to champion positive changes within our jails. They have been there along the way, providing a team of knowledgeable and supportive advisors, data-driven metrics, and standards-based feedback to assist us throughout the process.

Training and Education

NCCHC Accreditation Preparation

By reviewing your current correctional health care services policies, procedures, and practices, we determine if your health program is compliant with NCCHC’s Standards for Health Services for prisons or jails and provide clear recommendations for achieving compliance.. Through subsequent monitoring, we can evaluate whether further changes are required.

Correctional Health Care Certification Preparation

Through individual assessments, we determine whether staff members are on track for NCCHC professional certification programs and make recommendations for additional training and preparation, when necessary.

Crisis Intervention Training (CIT)

Our crisis intervention training teaches your correctional staff, officers, and administrators to recognize mental health and psychiatric symptoms, calm disruptive behaviors, and apply de-escalation techniques to help them avoid potentially violent interactions and create safe outcomes for staff and incarcerated populations alike.
