The celebration will acknowledge and thank CDC staff who have worked to get Phase I of this project up and running. It will provide clinical management tools for clinical staff and administrative managers. It will connect transitional case management tools in real time for Parole staff allowing for continuity of prescribed mental health-related medication for inmates as they parole.
