|Additional Description||The Connecticut Department of Correction (CTDOC or Department) seeks experienced Respondents to partner with the infirmary-based primary care and chronic behavioral health and disease management services that are embedded in the CTDOC system by providing timely, high quality, cost-effective and coordinated specialty, emergency department and hospital outpatient health services for inmates. The Department’s primary, mental health, and dental healthcare services for inmates is provided by staff and also administered by other Respondents. The Department’s primary objective is to provide quality healthcare while reducing cost, where possible. This Request for Proposals contemplates the creation of a Professional Services Contract as defined by Connecticut law. As set forth herein, the Department may determine that a multi-source award is most beneficial to the State of Connecticut. Contract(s) will be awarded to the most responsive and responsible Respondent(s) found to be in the best interest of the State of Connecticut and not necessarily to the lowest price respondent. CTDOC provides healthcare services in accordance with the American Correctional Association (ACA) and the National Commission on Correctional Healthcare (NCCHC) standards, as well as prevailing professional practices and community standards of care. The department also follows the guidelines established by the U.S. Preventative Services Taskforce (https://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/). Respondents are expected to propose the provision of quality healthcare services while reducing expenditures over the course of the contract. Maintaining continuity of care is a priority of the Department and the State of Connecticut. CTDOC expects that the successful Respondents(s) will provide services to close the feedback loops with CTDOC staff on patient outcomes and/or transmitting information to EHR system. CTDOC also expects that the successful Respondents(s) will assist in the transition of inmate patient to community providers upon their release, if appropriate. CTDOC will provide security and transportation services to and from medical appointment when services cannot be provided at the correctional facility. The successful Respondent is expected to participate in care management activities developed by CTDOC including utilization management, care coordination, intensive care management, quality management, reporting, predictive modeling, health risk assessment, provider profiling and other administrative services. The majority of individuals incarcerated in Connecticut eventually return to our communities. Many inmates were, prior to their incarceration, or will be, following their incarceration, clients of the state’s other human services agencies - including but not limited to the Departments of Social Services (DSS), Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), Developmental Services (DDS), and Veterans Affairs (VA).|
