Opening Discussion Topic:
Statewide, the overarching goal for the 25 Whole Person Care (WPC) Pilots is the coordination of care (physical and behavioral health, and social services) for a community’s sickest and most vulnerable – particularly, Medi-Cal beneficiaries who are high utilizers of unnecessary emergency medical services. There’s serious money committed here: over a five-year period, $3 billion in Federal, State of California, and local funds. In Sacramento, the City has taken the WPC concept a step further, as evidenced by the program’s name: Pathways to Health + Home. Here, the City, its healthcare partners – and the feds – are investing $64 million to make WPC the cornerstone of the City’s commitment to housing 2,000 homeless individuals by 2020.
During our Group Discussion, in addition to hearing about your familiarity – and interaction – with WPC initiatives, we’ll also look to discuss “Issues that are “Keeping You Up Nights”!
Featured Guest Presenter:
Transform Health was awarded the contract to help oversee this ambitious program. Starting with process maps and workflows, Lisa’s team is, literally, “in the trenches” with the homeless, providing care navigation and support. Fortunately, Lisa has ample background with similar projects, including one with nine counties in Texas, where her team established a collaborative, got stakeholder buy-in, and is achieving similar goals.
