  Correctional Health  
The goal of this project is the dissemination of easy-to-access information for those interested in correctional health issues. With this project, ACE! wishes to share with correctional and service agencies prototypes of information sharing models to advance practice, along with a map of services and continuum of care gaps. We provide timely, state of the art information to the field on how to develop interagency agreements to foster the continuum of health care across prison/jails and the community. This project will help agencies understand the basics of sharing confidential health care information to provide offenders with health care regardless of their location. We provide examples of mechanisms to improve the acquisition of services for offenders and to reduce the barriers to obtaining care. This project is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (Grant No. 2009-DB-BX-K016).
