Juvenile Justice

Connecting the dots: a holistic approach to juvenile success

The role of the Juvenile Justice health system in supporting juvenile success is greater than it has ever been. So are the challenges, both medical and administrative. A holistic approach has become essential. Medicat helps every stakeholder in the Juvenile Justice wellness ecosystem connect the dots and make a vital contribution to the ultimate goals of juvenile success while navigating through the jurisdictional authority that varies by State.

Administrative Support

You wonder how medical facilities within the Juvenile Justice System can safeguard the physical and emotional well-being of youth so they can promote positive legal socialization, reinforce a prosocial identity, and facilitate compliance with the law. How do you identify at-risk youth who have the potential to harm others or themselves? How do you enable the Juvenile Justice health system to handle growth in patient volume and administrative demands? How can you be sure you’re in regulatory compliance? How do you measure the contribution of healthcare facilities to the overall well-being of the juvenile body? The answer is Medicat. Let us help.

Rehabilitation Services Director and Management

Your vision is to provide higher quality care to more juveniles with a holistic approach to their emotional and physical well-being. You’d like your care team to utilize a multi-disciplinary strategy, with one file on each student. You want to integrate behavioral health/counseling and medical records to improve care and identify at-risk youth. You want to free your staff from time-consuming administrative and reporting burdens. You’d like to produce reports more quickly, including analysis of State mandated health center performance on key metrics like juveniles seen, diagnoses, outcomes, and more. Medicat is the solution. Let us help.

Physicians, Nurses, and Counselors

You’re used to doing things the “old way” with pen and paper records, but you recognize that it’s inefficient. It takes time away from your primary mission: seeing juvenile patients in an effective and efficient manner. You’d like to treat the “whole person,” connecting the dots (medical, counseling), but patient records are in separate silos. Producing reports takes forever and eats up weekends. Same goes for verifying immunization compliance. Intakes, scheduling appointments, and charting take up time. You’re worried that switching systems or switching to digital will be a huge hassle, creating new problems. Medicat can help. Our software is friendly and so is our support team.
