Corrections

MMIC's mobile healthcare delivery solutions provide correctional facilities with a unique tool to control healthcare costs while protecting local citizens from the risk of inmate escape. 

MMIC's Mobile Surgery Units™ provide an on-site solution that lowers costs in several ways.  Outsourcing surgery to local hospitals can be expensive.  An on-site solution allows the correctional facility to contract with physicians to provide services on-site at significantly lower rates than are typically charged by local hospitals.  MMIC offers a total solution by providing Mobile Surgery Units™, along with the professional technicians and nursing staff with its units. 

Correctional officers and transportation costs also impact correctional budgets when off-site surgical services are required.  It is typical that two to four correctional officers and a driver must accompany an inmate who is receiving off-site surgery.  Depending upon the surgical procedure turnaround time, the cost to provide the correctional officer coverage and transportation services required can include excessive overtime resulting in very expensive services.  MMIC's experience indicates that transportation costs and correctional officer services can be as high as the health care costs.  This effectively doubles the expense.

Another unexpected but cost savings that has been reported to MMIC is directly related to the provision of on-site surgical services is that the number of surgeries performed for self inflicted injuries declines significantly when inmates realize that the need for surgery will not result in them leaving the correctional facility to receive the needed care at an off-site location.

The most important benefit is the security to the community by keeping surgical services within the prison walls.  There have been too many tragic losses of correctional officers and other citizens because of an inmate medical transport gone awry.
