We’re more than just a technology company. We believe we can use our real-time arrest data to help prevent an escalation of substance abuse — and essentially support a community in its harm reduction policy. Why does it matter? Drug overdose deaths in the United States are at record numbers, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Biometrica supports the use of real-time criminal data and analysis, and algorithmically automated continuous monitoring to help identify behavior relating to the sale and trafficking of illegal drugs, clusters, spikes and patterns of distribution, cross pollination between TCOs, MLOs, local street gangs and other criminal organizations, and the direct and indirect problems caused by the proliferation of this collective criminal behavior. Specifically relating to substance abuse, we look to use our data and analytics to support and assist in the work of public health and public safety initiatives, community support groups, population health organizations, and those working on harm reduction, prevention and treatment in making data-driven decisions that could lead to more efficient resource allocation and community investment, while identifying populations and individuals in need and stratifying risk. 

Here’s how we can help

  • Data-Driven Health Outcomes

    The multi-jurisdictional data we amalgamate can be ingested into tools and algorithms to benchmark for dissemination of patient education, primary behavioral health and resilience, and social support systems. It can be married with other data for strategic analysis, including by adding geolocation and hotspots to notify care management workflows. It can also be used to determine the kind of intervention presented to specific populations and the impact of those interventions on targeted health outcomes.

  • Set Up Red Flags, Identify Needs

    Policy makers and public health analysts could automate and set up red flags for charges of concern, from domestic violence to meth use, based on terms/words found in charges across different states to look for clusters relating to those charges, in order to allocate resources and mobilize targeted responses, both for prevention and intervention. It would also allow communities to make real-time decisions on resource allocation based on immediate needs, identify high-risk individuals, and get them help in real-time.

  • Continuity of Care, Make It Count

    Real-time individual data could provide state Medicaid programs with the ability to assist with what is a known problem: That of treatment failures, known to happen with the discontinuity of care at the point of transition into jails and prisons. Incarceration should not equate a discontinuation of support, and our criminal justice systems may be best served with data-driven decisions that ensure an individual’s continuity of care. Similarly, in-reach case managers could work with individuals to ensure transition of care with the outside world.

  • Automate Reports, To The Hour

    Public safety experts could use this data for threat analyses. Our analytics rely on the most advanced observability tools available, built on proven technology that includes intelligent machine learning to converge silos, delivering unified visibility and actionable insights for real-time maps. Our systems allow users to autogenerate granular statistics on a number of factors up to the previous hour, and run comparisons within a county, state or region for a particular period based on customized parameters.

  • Prioritize Treatment, Optimize Support

    While the data amalgamated in UMbRA, Biometrica’s multi-jurisdictional database, may provide individual information that could assist in providing targeted intervention in real-time, the information available through UMbRA does not involve patient records about substance use disorder or diagnosis, or any details on treatment. We hope this real-time data could be used by providers through alerts to optimize resources and provide emergency support to high-risk individuals or increase support when needed to vulnerable communities.
