Community Transition Program (CTP)
Many individuals incarcerated within Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) institutions have histories of addiction and have participated in treatment programs within the Bureau of Recovery Services located in the institutions. The Community Transition Program (CTP) is designed to improve access to treatment and recovery support services for individuals that received Substance Use Disorders (SUD) programming while incarcerated as they transition back into the community. The Ohio Department of Mental Health OhioMHAS sought an information technology services partner with the experience and competency to do all things necessary for or incidental to the development of the CTP application in 8 weeks. PSI was selected.
The business requirements were to capture and manage the data of applicants (coordinating entities) who will work in collaboration with partners from surrounding communities and across board and agency boundaries to successfully transition incarcerated selected individuals with substance use disorders back to their community. PSI wrote the Community Transition Project (CTP) application utilizing a MVC5 architecture in C# and Microsoft SQL Server. This was a fast tracked effort comprising project design, build, test and implementation utilizing weekly sprints.
PSI delivered the CTP application in 8 weeks. The application is used by the coordinating entities (six Ohio regions) to input treatment data aggregated from the providers who are directly providing treatment services to the clients in transition. By aggregating data from the provider and entity coordinators, the OhioMHAS Administrator is able to track, manage, and report on the usage and effectiveness of the CTP Program.
