Medical Services


Medical Services provides medical and dental care for offenders in Oklahoma Department of Corrections (ODOC) facilities, work centers, contract facilities, and DOC offenders in contract county jail beds. An electronic health record system is now in use at all ODOC facilities, allowing current access to electronic documentation of all medical services and consults provided.  Quality and access to care is strongly emphasized and is measured by periodic facility audits by central office performance improvement nurse managers and by a performance improvement committee composed of ODOC professional Medical staff. ODOC clinical quality outcomes routinely exceed community benchmarks. The American Correctional Association accredits all of the medical services units along with their facilities. 

Generic and clinically appropriate medications are prescribed.  Medications are provided by an outside pharmacy vendor at low cost, resulting in efficient medication cost control.  A pharmacy and therapeutics committee composed of ODOC clinicians and pharmacist monitors prescribing practices for cost efficiency and quality of care.

An internal ODOC utilization and review committee composed of ODOC physicians and staff monitors for efficient use of internal and external resources; including hospital days, emergency room visits, laboratory tests, and specialty care.  All offender patient deaths are reviewed internally by ODOC physicians’ mortality peer review and are also reviewed externally.
