California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation study yields quality measurements
Date:5/16/2011

Los Angeles, CA (May 13, 2011) New studies released in the April issue of the Journal of Correctional Health Care (JCHC) (published by SAGE) are helping the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to establish a set of prison health care quality measurements.

The JCHC issue highlights a research project conducted by the RAND Corporation for the CDCR to help it address problems related to access to care and quality of care, and to gain a better understanding of the strengths and weakness of its health care services.

Findings from an environmental scan of quality measures currently used by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and several large state correctional systems illustrate the wide variations in both the number and types of performance measures as well as the data systems used to track and report outcomes.

"Clearly, establishing a system of sustainable quality measures is a desired outcome," wrote JCHC editor John R. Miles. "But this is difficult to achieve and maintain in today's changing correctional health care environments."

An appendix to the series lists the final 79 indicators (out of 111 rated and more than a thousand considered) recommended for the CDCR's starter set.

The CDCR, which came under federal receivership in 2005, is committed to the five-year strategic plan issued last summer that sets a goal of bringing 90% of the prison system's health care programs into compliance with National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) standards for health services. These studies help in a critical step to hitting those goals.

The three articles are:
