Helping Pima County Exchange Justice-Health Information: SEARCH Shares Details of Project Success at NIEM in November
In a pilot project supported by SEARCH, stakeholders in Pima County, Arizona, leveraged national standards and practices to improve business processes, policies and technical solutions to conduct medical and health assessments for the 40,000-plus offenders arrested and booked in the county each year.
What is NIEM?
The National Information Exchange Model is an XML-based information exchange framework. NIEM makes it possible for organizations to share critical data; as a result, people are empowered to make informed decisions that improve efficiency and help organizations advance their missions.
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal appointed Ms. Terri Fisher to serve as Georgia’s representative on the SEARCH Membership Group, effective September 1, 2014.
Ms. Fisher is Director of the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC), a division of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). GCIC/GBI is the state agency responsible for operational decisions and policy on managing Georgia criminal justice information, particularly criminal history record information.
Ms. Fisher replaces Ms. Terry Gibbons, who had served as Georgia’s SEARCH Member since April 2009, and who served a two-year term on the Board of Directors.
