Using Digital Tools to Improve Outcomes and Strengthen Community Bonds


Monday, August 19, 2019
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Session Type: Workshop

Social media have changed how we communicate and conduct the most basic of tasks in our lives. Three-quarters of all Americans, and over 90% of those between the ages of 18 and 29, use smartphones. Nonetheless, our jails are filled with defendants who miss court-ordered appearances and our emergency rooms are filled with patients who have been unable to access more steady treatment. Participants will leave this workshop with ready-to-use, effective technology that improves outcomes and strengthens community bonds. Examples will include applications that courts, and law enforcement agencies are using to remind probationers about required court or therapy appointments, options for interfacing with case management systems, offender tracking and pattern-of-life information systems, and the more sophisticated cognitive behavioral therapy digital applications.
