By now you should be familiar with the basics of the Diagnostics and Imaging Laboratory (DIL) system, which is a part of the U.S. Justice Department’s criminal justice system.
It is a central facility at the prison that collects and analyzes medical data to determine if inmates are experiencing a specific health condition.
You can access the system here.
The information the system is collecting includes information about a prisoner’s condition, such as how well he or she is feeling, and the medications they are taking.
You also get a snapshot of a prisoner by logging into their DIL system.
A prisoner’s status is recorded as “active” when they are in the system, and “inactive” if they are not.
The system also provides a view of the patient’s condition in real time, which helps keep track of which medications are working and which are not, so they can be managed more appropriately.
But how exactly does the system gather this data?
To help you understand how this system works, we spoke with an inmate who is serving time in a Texas prison.
She is serving a sentence for drug-related crimes.
This is the first in a series of articles that we are publishing about how prison medicine is made, and how prisoners are treated.
The story is part of our ongoing investigation into the criminal justice reform movement.
The prison system in Texas has a complex, but effective, medical and rehabilitation system that helps rehabilitate inmates, according to the state.
“The system has been successful, with a lot of good results,” says Amy Hockenberry, a corrections administrator for Texas.
“People are getting better, with more medication.
But the system doesn’t necessarily go out and collect and store all the information.”
But how does the data collection and storage go from there?
Inmates have the ability to make their own medical decisions, and they have access to all of their personal data from medical records, cell phones, medical examiners, and even the inmate’s own phone numbers.
According to Hockensberry, “the data that is collected is not just medical records; it is also the data about the inmates health.”
“If an inmate has a medical issue, they can go to their doctor, but they don’t have access and they can’t look at the patient record or see their medical history,” she says.
“Inmates have access only to medical records from the jail, the hospital, and their own doctors.
And then you have to be notified about what medication you’re taking.
And that can be pretty problematic, because the medical records are available online and the patients can see it and make their decisions about how to use it.
So, there’s a lot going on, and it’s not always clear what the data is.”
The problem is that prisoners can’t do their own health care, which means they can get sick and die if they aren’t able to make the right decisions, according the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas.
The data collected by the prison system is also being used to track prisoners in other states, according a 2013 report by the ACLU of Texas and the University of California, Los Angeles.
That report detailed the use of prison data by law enforcement agencies in California, Texas, and Illinois.
“If you want to know how people are using medical records or cell phones or who is in contact with them, there is no way to know what the records are,” says Hocksenberry.
“There are so many ways to get access to medical information.”
The Texas prison system was the first to launch a clinical data system that is a key part of its criminal justice reforms program, but Hockins says that there are many other states that have similar systems, such the Michigan Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (MDC).
“I think the prison is very good at making sure that information that is about inmates is accurate, and that it’s up to the doctors and nurses,” she said.
“I’ve worked with MDC, and I’ve learned a lot from them about how they do their job.”
The MDC’s system works by connecting inmates to medical providers, who then get their information and use it to determine how much medication they are using, when they should be taking it, and which medications to use in order to control their symptoms.
The state also uses a medical examiner to provide a report on a prisoner if they have a medical problem, according Hockson.
“You can ask them to make an order of a medication,” she explains.
“Or, you can ask a doctor to make a prescription for a medication, which can help the prisoner in a couple of different ways.
You could ask for a prescription, and you could ask the doctor to send it back, which would help them with their medication.
So you can do that, but you can also do it in a confidential way, so that you don’t even know what you’re getting.”
