Brief: Improving inmate health
The Kansas Department of Corrections wants to develop an electronic health information and medical records system to document all health care services for inmates. The department has about 9,200 inmates at any one time. The system should share data between all facilities; have clinical guidelines to assist in treatment, diagnosis and education of inmates; formulate legal documents and have an electronic signature capacity. Responses to a request for information are due March 31. A request for proposals is expected in July.
