In a Nutshell
- Providing health care to prisoners is a costly endeavor, yet the state does not adequately assess whether it meets its legal obligations to prisoners in the most cost-effective way.
- Improving quality of care and maximizing cost-effectiveness of the prison health care system requires a significant amount of data to identify and understand potential cost-drivers.
- Since every resident in Michigan has a stake in the quality and efficiency of the prison health care system, the state should ensure that the relevant data regarding prisoner health and spending be made available to policymakers and the public.
