Learning Communities: Interface Process Measures

April 24, 2018

Between 2011 and 2013, the CSG Justice Center worked with NIATx—a learning collaborative that is part of the Center for Health Enhancement Systems Studies (CHESS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison—to bring the NIATx process improvement model to the correctional system. Based on lessons learned from that experience, a gap was identified in tracking progress in substance addiction treatment in the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. In response, the CSG Justice Center partnered with Dr. Faye Taxman from George Mason University’s Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence to develop guiding principles and process measures that can help guide cross-systems delivery of service.

Over the course of four discussions, CSG Justice Center staff and Dr. Taxman described the shared principles and process measures that can help coordinate service delivery between the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. These interface process measures are detailed in Process Measures at the Interface Between the Justice System and Behavioral Health: Advancing Practice and Outcomes.

Each conversation focuses on one of the four sets of interface process measures.
