Patients who are frequent users of emergency health services are often vulnerable and unstably housed. New programs across the country are showing the benefits of health centers and supportive housing providers working together to best serve frequent user patients by providing them with housing and services, which results in improved lives and lower costs to the health care system. In order to best serve this population, the health and housing sectors must establish strong, mutual partnerships with common goals and clear roles.
Please join our Health and Housing Partnerships webinar on January 14, 2015, to hear from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) and health centers that have lead the way in partnering with housing providers. Different geographic regions and types of partnerships will be represented, and we will discuss how to establish and maintain these partnerships as well as how health centers can benefit from them.
