Dallas was similar to many cities that struggle with identification, assessment, and treatment of individuals with mental health conditions when they encounter the criminal justice system. In this setting, common practical problems include institutionalized resistance to data sharing; lack of multi-agency coordination and collaboration; and inefficient operations.
HarrisLogic, LLC (HL) implemented a data fusion platform that was purpose-built to optimize coordination of care and reduce inefficiencies within the system by creating an authoritative client index across stakeholders. The platform enables clinicians to rapidly identify clients within the network, view a wide spectrum of data including historical services, pharmacy, previous criminal justice system encounters, current charges and location within the jail.
Since its inception, the JDP has processed more than one million jail book-ins and enabled substantial reductions in both jail recidivism and higher levels of care utilization.
Instant notification of jail book-ins reduces the time to detect and respond to persons with behavioral health problems
Integration of multiple data sources enables the creation of holistic views of consumers that improves point of service decision-making to ensure clients get the right care, at the right place, at the right time
Flexible workflow interface organized around the sequential intercept and case processing constructs enables coordination of care across organizations that previously operated in silos. Such integration improves operational efficiency for everyone dependent upon cross-agency collaboration
Reduced jail recidivism and unnecessary utilization of higher levels of care in the health and behavioral health systems
