Dashboard & Performance Improvement

Dashboard Glossary

California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS), in partnership with California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitations (CDCR), offers comprehensive health care services, from primary preventive care services to end of life care, to the resident population of the California Prison system.

Since 2011, the Health Care Services (HCS) Dashboard has been a vital tool to provide information usually monitored by health care organizations in areas like patient access timeliness, disease management, patient outcomes, utilization of services, and cost. Organizational leaders and program managers use it to survey key performance indicators, identify opportunities for improvement, and trend performance over time.

While the HCS Dashboard has been publicly available as monthly pdf documents since April 2012, starting in May 2023, the HCS Dashboard will be available as an interactive web-based tool, allowing end-users a more interactive and ADA compliant experience.

The new interactive report allows both statewide and institution comparisons and trended performance across over time for 286 measures organized into 12 domains including Scheduling and Access to Care, Population Health Management, Resource Management, Staffing, and Costs.

Expert Evaluations

In September 2012, the Federal Court, in Order Re: Receivership Transition Plan and Expert Evaluations, requested that the Court medical experts conduct evaluations at each CDCR prison to determine whether an institution is in substantial compliance. The Order contemplates that an institution “shall be deemed to be in substantial compliance, and therefore constitutionally adequate, if it receives an overall OIG score of at least 75% and an evaluation from at least two of the three court experts that the institution is providing adequate care.”

In conducting the reviews, the medical experts evaluated essential components to an adequate health care system. These include organizational structure, health care infrastructure (e.g.clinical space, equipment, etc.), health care processes, and the quality of care.
