Ascendian Healthcare Consulting, a national healthcare IT consultancy, has engaged with the California Correctional Healthcare Services (CCHCS) to deliver services that will create a digital imaging health care IT foundation for the state’s prison systems, which will increase efficiency and reduce costs.

CCHCS and Ascendian are focused on implementing solutions that will improve clinical operations statewide through new technology and streamlined processes. The overall goal was to modernize and standardize the outdated and disjointed prison health care system. A 10-year health care plan driven by three key values is now underway:

  •     Deploying health care technology and solutions for system wide cost reductions
  •     Revising existing contracts to improve vendor performance and cost containment
  •     Standardizing facilities and workflows to increase health care access and delivery

“The solutions Ascendian is providing are another tool to help us meet the court mandates in health care services, while also increasing efficiency and saving taxpayer dollars,” said Brenda Epperly, Statewide Director, Allied Health Services at CCHCS.
