National Leader in Correctional EHR
Laurel County Corrections which was featured on HBO Vice News for its creation of correction specific e-cigarettes, used proceeds to purchase CorrecTek Spark EHR to help benefit inmate welfare. The feature documentary “Here’s What Happened When Prisoners Started Vaping” was originally broadcast on November 27, 2018.

Do you wish you had someone at CorrecTek who was aware of your current workflow and the detailed processes at your facility?
CorrecTek Account Managers proactively monitor CorrecTek use and participate in staff meetings by phone.
Account managers also keep the facility informed of upcoming software enhancements and manage CorrecTek related projects.
Does your facility transfer inmates to/from another correctional facility?
The CorrecTek HUB allows medical records to be shared quickly and securely with authorized partner facilities.
Deep Dives on the CorrecTek EHR…
Why use an EHR or EMR in your correctional facility?
An Electronic Health Records (EHR) system, or as it is sometimes known, an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system, is a computer-based system used to store patient medical records as opposed to using paper charts to track patient medical history.
The healthcare industry has been one of the last industries in the U.S. to move…
Why the CorrecTek EHR versus the Competition?
Assuming your correctional organization has made the decision to acquire an EHR, why should you consider the CorrecTek EHR over the competitors’ EHR’s on the market?
Accountability vs. Accessibility
Every organization strives for accountability and compliance.
A lot of people like to shop at a Wal-Mart Supercenter. With one trip you can pick up bananas, cat food, motor oil, a pair of needle nose pliers, a case of Diet Coke, tube socks, mayonnaise, and a large jar of dill pickles. This is one-stop-shopping at its finest, and nearly everyone loves one-stop shopping.
Does a small jail have the same need for an EHR that a larger jail would have?
The answer is not only, yes, but perhaps, yes and then some.
CorrecTek Spark Configuration Management and Compliance
With the CorrecTek EHR, the correctional organization has the ability to review, test, and authorize-for-use, all configurable items. Configurable items include but are not limited to Departments, Users, Workflows, Documentation Protocols/Processes, Forms, Order Definitions, Report Definitions, and Referral Types.
CorrecTek Spark Multi-Agency Support
The CorrecTek EHR has the ability to track the “agency” associated with a particular patient stored in the CorrecTek database. For example, if the patient is an ICE detainee, the CorrecTek EHR can track that association as well as all medical records created during the existence of that association.
The Request for Proprosal (RFP) Process
– Respectful Suggestions from CorrecTek
At CorrecTek, we have participated in the RFP selection process for an EHR hundreds of times. The following advice is based on our experience. We have seen good RFP’s and bad RFP’s. A poor RFP, and/or RFP process, has the potential to deny the correctional organization the ability to make an informed decision based on the complete picture. We share this experience to offer our perspective on what can make for a good or poor RFP process. Of course, you may view it differently.
Hidden Costs – You Get What You Pay For (and sometimes even less)
In your process of considering various competing EHR vendors, you have, of course, reached out for quotes from those vendors. Naturally, every vendor’s price is different, and you may be unclear as to the deliverables being proposed by each vendor and if there are in fact, any hidden costs in the vendor proposals.

CorrecTek EHR for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Housing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees introduces unique requirements within a correctional facility.
We have several private and government facilities using the CorrecTek Spark EHR to manage healthcare documentation for ICE detainees. For those customers, we have incorporated ICE-specific documentation needs within CorrecTek Spark and can do the same for you.
The CorrecTek Spark Electronic Health Records (EHR) system can enhance your ability to meet ICE-specific requirements for medical, dental, and behavioral health services.
You can eliminate the problems of paper charts, and better meet the needs of ICE, by modernizing your facility around the CorrecTek Spark EHR. For more information contact Christa Sullivan, National Accounts Manager, 866-438-3671, extension 235, or email email@example.com.
CorrecTek ‘Express’ Implementation Model
CorrecTek has traditionally offered a full-service implementation model for transitioning a correctional facility to the CorrecTek EHR. While this approach has proven to be overwhelmingly successful, for some potential customers it has been cost prohibitive.
To allow price-sensitive customers a path to acquiring the latest CorrecTek EHR, the CorrecTek Spark system, we are excited to announce a new implementation model: CorrecTek “Express”. With the “Express” implementation model, the customer can assume most, if not all, aspects of the implementation thereby saving the cost of implementation fees. For example, using the “Express” model, a 150 bed jail could implement CorrecTek Spark for as low as $650/month with a one-year lease commitment.
Same great CorrecTek Spark EHR as always, but now affordable for smaller, price-sensitive facilities. For more information contact Christa Sullivan, National Accounts Manager, 866-438-3671, extension 235, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
