CMC will establish and maintain a network of healthcare providers for your facility to ensure the highest quality services for the inmate population. CMC’s philosophy is to utilize on-site service wherever possible to mitigate security risk and reduce your costs associated with transportation and correctional officer overtime.
CMC monitors all phases of the healthcare delivery program using nationally accepted utilization management (UM) criteria, ensuring cost-effective medical treatment without compromising inmate healthcare. Medical specialists oversee the CMC UM program and monitor all phases of the healthcare delivery system on a continual basis. This policy of concurrent review is proven to reduce the costs and length of in-patient hospitalizations, outpatient specialty services, and emergency room visits.
CMC provides a comprehensive continuous quality improvement (CQI) program to your facility to ensure, in an objective and systematic manner, that the healthcare being provided to your facility consistently meets or exceeds established standards.
Our highly experienced corporate staff is thoroughly knowledgeable regarding accreditation standards of the American Correctional Association (ACA), National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) and the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Through our corporate policies and procedures based on these standards, CMC is able to efficiently and effectively initiate, implement, and/or maintain facility accreditation.
As a company, CMC is young and inventive, staffed to seek out and apply new and innovative strategies to the provision of healthcare within the correctional environment, including the use of telemedicine and the introduction of state-of-the-art equipment to your facility. Equally important, however, CMC has as part of its team, expertise with vast correctional experience to ensure that these innovations remain firmly rooted in the realities of the industry.

Correctional Medical Care provides its medical and administrative programs to multiple correctional facilities, and each program is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of each facility. Healthcare can never be compromised or applied in a “cookie cutter” fashion across populations. This rings particularly true in correctional facilities, which hold a higher amount of people suffering from mental health issues, substance addictions, or chronic diseases like diabetes and arthritis. There is clearly a serious and time-sensitive need to address these issues, and to educate patients directly so that they can seek out treatment options upon their release.
Correctional Medical Care fills a multifaceted role within the corrections industry. Its use of healthcare services that exceed what one would find elsewhere affects the lives of inmates’ inside and outside of prison. Giving inmates access to medical, mental, or dental healthcare keeps them healthier and in higher spirits during their incarceration. After their release, having received quality healthcare, they are able to reenter society feeling stronger, more productive, and well-informed about their health needs. Thus this specialized area of healthcare can affect recidivism in parolees of correctional facilities.
Correctional Medical Care’s vision is not only to meet or exceed national correctional healthcare standards, but to do so via a sustainable and cost-effective delivery program. CMC monitors all phases of its programs through nationally accepted utilization management (UM) criteria, which is in turn overseen by medical specialists. With a concurrent review process and a dedication to operational transparency, CMC is able to continually analyze its own operations and reduce the costs and length of inpatient hospitalizations, outpatient specialty services, and emergency room visits.
CMC offers corporate policies and procedures based on the accreditation standards of American Correctional Association (ACA), National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC), and the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). However the company’s all-inclusive range of services are distinctly creative and modern, utilizing state-of-the-art equipments and technologies and leading the industry in mental health awareness and treatment.
