Enhance your Reentry Program 

Supporting the Journey to Evidence-based Case Management and Successful Client Reentry

CorrectTech’s Reentry Software Solution package provide correctional programs a digital approach to case management as they prepare clients for successful reentry after supervision.

The complete CorrectTech reentry package includes partnering with experts in correctional rehabilitation who can guide implementation in a way that improves reportable outcomes. We have partnered with Correctional Rehabilitation (CoRe) Services who have led EBP implementation across over 30 organizations nationwide. Including such consultation before, after or during implementation of CorrectTech helps your staff ensure best practices are attained with fidelity. The full package increases measurable program integrity and quality, especially important for audits, such as the Correctional Program Checklist (CPC).

Improve Effectiveness

Historically, case management has struggled to provide consistency across multiple managers, providers, and jurisdictions. The ability for agencies to measure success in case management appears challenging at best, near to impossible at worse. And yet, best practices in behavior change point towards a core set of approaches. A map exists to improve outcomes with various assessment tools that measure how well agencies are aligned.

In the Correctional Program Checklist (CPC), the resulting score provides a measure of program integrity and quality. And yet, there are many items with which agencies struggle. Over 50% of the CPC items could be positively impacted simply through strong implementation of CorrectTech Integrated Reentry system. With expert guidance and training, CoRe Services guides agencies through key components of best practices. For example, matching individuals to case managers based on specific responsivity factors is an important practice rarely accomplished. Instead, caseloads are assigned randomly or based on caseload slot availability. CoRe Services provides the support needed to understand responsivity and leverage agency resources to meet this need.

Another key area revolves around case plan visibility and progress. Supervisors should be able to track whether cases are on track for successful reentry. However, this is rarely accomplished. Without clear tracking methods, both clients and case managers may face unnecessary difficulties. For clients, lack of progress can be frustrating and lead to disengagement. For case managers, this can lead to demoralization and burn out. However, when clear criteria are established, progress measured and outcomes reviewed, continuous quality improvements (CQI) have a chance of taking hold.

Tap Expertise

Having an independent, fresh perspective to guide implementation can be valuable. The more you can demonstrate the success you’re having, while showing solid ways you’re working to improve, the more support and resources you can rally.

Involving experts trained in the Principles of Effective Intervention (RNR) and Core Correctional Practices (CCP) maximizes your effort, and places you in a position to tell your program’s story.  

Measure Fidelity

Programs that are faithful to an evidence-based practice design are considered high fidelity. Various standards where measurement can be complicated are of utmost importance, like:

  • Hiring, evaluating, supervising, and training staff in interpersonal interactions
  • Observing treatment regularly
  • Monitoring program components both internally and externally
  • Following social learning theory and strength-based approaches
  • Facilitating change planning
  • Providing CBT with relapse prevention and booster sessions
  • Collaborating with community-based services
  • Monitoring referral services, observing their adherence to RNR
  • Measuring behavior change and reinforcing success

See into the Future

If you could predict your programs outcomes, would you? Having trained experts provide validated program evaluation is like seeing into the future. The more program configurations a person is familiar with, the more they can understand nuanced challenges and their solutions.

Structured Program Evaluation

CoRe Services provides trained and experienced experts in validated monitoring instruments, like: the Correctional Program Assessment Inventory (CPAI) and the University of Cincinnati Correctional Program Checklist (CPC). This means with the CorrectTech automation and expert consultation, we can help you navigate detailed practice and process improvements. When agencies implement new systems of record, they have an opportunity to transform practice if implementation is effective and efficient. For this reason, including an EBP expert saves resources in the long run.

Whether your agency is thinking of implementing the complete CorrectTech Reentry solution or only needs help with training, program evaluation, implementing EBP’s, fidelity, or organizational change surrounding any or all of the above, we can help.

Our expert experience can allow you to shape key elements of your system, like:

  • Structured program evaluation to measure your current programs adherence to CCP and RNR[1]
  • Practical recommendations for improvement that are actionable
  • Policy and practice implementation support
  • Staff training and coaching
