Incentives and Rewards

What does this mean for you?

We provide a streamlined system for an incentive and rewards program for positive behavior monitoring and recognition that is fully integrated into the CorrectTech system.

  • Employ Colorado DCJ’s BSMART (Behavioral Shaping Model and Reinforcement Tool) to help achieve better client outcomes.
  • Develop your own incentives and rewards program (compatible with your progressive sanctions program) with 100% configurability that allows agencies in any county or state to adopt all, some or none of the standards created by Colorado DCJ.
  • Take advantage of our robust mechanism for applying the 4:1 ratio at your agency without a single piece of paper or spreadsheet.
  • Recognize positive behavior.
  • Establish standardized client behaviors that earn incentives (such as XX days of no incidents, gaining employment, completing treatment, etc.) and let the CorrectTech system monitor them.
  • Identify case plan goals and steps to be automatically rewarded upon completion through our automated Case Planning module.
  • Save staff time in tracking rewards items, redemptions, client point balances, and full transaction histories using our integrated Rewards Store.
  • Give clients the freedom to manage their point balances and choose how they redeem their rewards.
  • Better understand what motivates your clients by linking data from their assessments through case plan completions and positive behavior recognition.
  • See where your clients are earning incentive points in relation to their associated case plan needs, completed goals and steps and more using our Enterprise Data Manager.
  • Reinforce your agency standards and policies with behavior recognition.
  • Make changes easily without programming changes as you learn and grow!

Here's how CorrectTech makes it happen:

Our 100% configurable behavior management system for a behavior recognition and incentive/rewards system that uses information already measured throughout the CorrectTech system.

  • Fully configurable settings allow changes and updates over time without software coding changes. All changes are welcome from local and statewide experiences, research and/or referral agency mandates.
  • Client population flexibility recognizes any client condition or characteristic (i.e. assessed risk level, program level, residential or non-residential) for unique and individualized application of incentives and rewards.
  • Builds on other CorrectTech modules (instead of replacing) to help our existing customers’ staff and clients adopt new features:
    • Client Self-Service function expanded – Client Self-Service allows direct messaging between community corrections staff and clients for positive reinforcement messages and more. Client Self-Service also makes clients more self-sufficient in managing their incentives and rewards by seeing point balances and available rewards and requesting rewards by converting points into tangibles.
    • Case Planning Module expanded – Goals and action steps can be marked “eligible” for reward points (per defined grid). Points are automatically reflected in the client ledger upon eligible case plan goals / steps completion.
  • New incentives and rewards system gives agencies full control of their behavior management program with full configuration abilities including operational essentials for streamlined management.
    • Establish one or more incentive levels (for example, bronze, silver and gold), point values for each behavior by category, and whether any behavior can only be rewarded once.
  • Behavior recognition comes in five types (regardless of where they are on the incentive grid):
    • Automated measurement: Automated jobs run to check for successes based on agency defined desirable behaviors (such as 120 days of accountable whereabouts).
    • Case plan completion: When goals/steps that are eligible for rewards are completed, points will automatically be credited to clients’ rewards system ledgers. Links to the criminogenic needs are recorded.
    • Document existence: Points are rewarded to clients based on the completion of a document identified by the following agency defined parameters: document name, starting date (i.e. intake) and completion date (i.e. within 7 days of intake).
    • Prosocials (individualized behaviors): Agencies define a list of categorized choices that are manually rewarded with comments added by staff. Clients see points applied to their rewards ledger and a prosocial message in Client Self-Service.
    • Standardized behavior: Agencies define standard client behaviors for automated responses when documented in other modules of CorrectTech with options for manual entry by staff based on a fully configurable list of choices and point values.
  • Points tracking and redemption
    • Clients and staff can see client points ledger, running balance, items redeemed and a list of possible reward items on Client Self-Service, the client placement and the Rewards Store.
    • Specialized roles designate who can operate the Rewards Store, who can approve non-commissary items and who can handout non-commissary items.
    • Clients can request items on their own using Client Self-Service.
    • Case managers (on individual client placements) or the Rewards Store manager (across all clients) can redeem and fulfill rewards items.
    • Transactions of points or rewards can be voided (with reason).
  • Rewards items management
    • Define a list of items that are available at the store. This list can be easily adjusted by adding and deactivating items as inventory and other factors change.
    • Agencies can designate items as a one-time only reward (per client).
    • The complete list of possible rewards is visible to client on Client Self-Service and to staff on the rewards tab in the client placement or in the Rewards Store.
