Off late healthcare services in Puerto Rico's prisons were so bad that a U.S. District Court called for creating a new, nonprofit entity to take them over. The result was the Corrcetional Health Services Corporation (CHSC), which today delivers high-quality healthcare services to all inmates confined under the jurisdiction of the Puerto Rico administration of Corrections. Adopting a policy of technology innovation and a foundation of Intel and Dell technologies, CHSC transformed a substandard, violation-plagued healthcare system into a best-in-class operation where meeting inmated' health needs plays a vital role in their rehabilitation.
