CHCF Features Work of WPC Pilots Through Papers, Video
The California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) recently released several resources related to California’s Whole Person Care (WPC) Pilots and their intensive work to coordinate physical health, behavioral health, and social services for Medi-Cal enrollees with the most complex health conditions. The WPC Pilots are part of Medi-Cal’s 1115 Waiver and seek to deliver comprehensive services and supports to individuals who are homeless, frequently visit emergency departments, or were recently released from jail or prison. 25 pilots are currently operating in the state with an enrollment of over 108,000 people as of December 2018.
CHCF recently published two papers related to the pilots’ progress to date:
- Whole Person Care: A Mid-Point Check-In – Provides an overview of program implementation, accomplishments to date, and remaining challenges.
- Catalyzing Coordination: Technology’s Role in California’s Whole Person Care Pilots – Outlines challenges faced by pilots when adopting technology solutions and features case studies of pilots adopting innovative care-coordination efforts.
Additionally, Marin County produced a short video on its WPC Pilot, providing a sense of services delivered, local impacts, and entities involved. The video is available here.
