NCCHC Jail and Prison Standards Now Available Online
The National Commission on Correctional Health Care and PowerDMS are proud to announce the launch of a one-year pilot program that, for the first time, gives correctional health professionals electronic access to NCCHC’s Standards for Health Services for prisons and jails. PowerDMS is web-based software that reduces the cost and time of compliance by storing and routing critical policy and training content online.
Correctional health professionals now have fee-based access to view and search electronic versions of the standards manuals, making it easier than ever to understand and disseminate vital information to help ensure that systems, policies and procedures are in keeping with nationally recognized best practices.
“NCCHC is excited for the opportunity to partner with PowerDMS,” said NCCHC president and CEO Thomas Joseph, MPS, CAE, CCHP. “Correctional facilities, whether or not they are accredited, will find this new format a convenient and cost-effective way to help them improve health care quality.”
PowerDMS is a cloud-based document management software company. The application provides practical tools to organize and manage crucial documents and industry standards, train and test employees, and uphold proof of compliance, thereby helping organizations reduce risk and liability.
