As communities are looking to reduce health care costs and improve patient outcomes, medical respite care programs are filling a critical need for people who are experiencing homelessness. Whether providing hospitals with a safe and legal discharge option, or creating a bridge between hospital and supportive housing programs, medical respite care is a key piece of the local continuum of health care. These programs can reduce hospital lengths of stay and readmissions as well as facilitate better care transitions and case management plans for a very vulnerable population. But how to finance these programs to ensure they are sustainable? This webinar provides an overview of the most common ways to fund medical respite and give practical advice for how to start or grow a program in your area.
