Closing the Justice-Health Data Gap


A newly launched website is aiming to bridge the communication gap between justice and health systems.

Justice and Health Connect, a site created by the Vera Institute of Justice, provides resources intended to aid in data sharing between community health and justice systems.

The site’s launch comes on the heels of recent studies that highlighted a need for services that identify those with mental illnesses and other medical issues in the criminal justice system.

The sites features include a toolkit for designing information sharing initiatives, a resource library, policy briefs, legal memos, templates, and webinars.

It also features “myth-busters” that address misconceptions about health and justice data sharing and technology.
