TeleHealth Solutions Revolutionizing Healthcare Behind Bars

Telemedicine continues to revolutionize healthcare in every space imaginable, including inside of prisons and correctional facilities.

To that end, on Tuesday, TeleHealth Solutions, LLC announced that it has been retained by Riverside University Health System—Correctional Health Services (RUHS-CHS) to implement a telehealth program for individuals housed in its correctional facilities.

RUHS-CHS provides services in five jails or correctional facilities in Riverside County, California, all managed by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Corrections Division, one of the largest jail operations in the state and throughout the country. TeleHealth Solutions is a vendor-agnostic consultative partner that addresses every step involved in planning, procuring and optimizing telehealth programs.

“We are honored to partner with Riverside County. Correctional facilities are increasingly turning to telemedicine to make healthcare more available to inmates because it enhances quality, reduces costs and improves safety,” said Ned Thurman, Chief Executive Officer of TeleHealth Solutions. “Telehealth allows detainees to see specialists and other providers who might not otherwise be available, and corrections officers aren’t forced to transport individuals outside the correctional facility walls.”

“TeleHealth Solutions brings an objective viewpoint supported by years of experience with a wide range of customers,”  Thurman concludes. “This helps to ensure satisfaction among all of an organization’s stakeholders. Our expertise includes an in-depth understanding of both clinical workflow and technology, the two major components of a telemedicine system.”
