First comes data: Using homeless and health care data to drive housing interventions and reduce public costs
People who choose a life of caring — and the organizations and communities they serve — deserve a special kind of support.
As communities understand the benefits of addressing social determinants of health, it's often difficult to organize a coordinated response that brings together healthcare organizations, government funders, and service providers. This webinar offers a case study on how the city of Boise, Idaho is successfully integrating homeless and housing data with healthcare and other systems to identify people for interventions and track outcomes.
Boise recognized they have frequent users of public crisis systems who cycle through homelessness, emergency departments, jails, and more. Boise adopted the Frequent Users Systems Engagement (FUSE) initiative to stop this cycle. Developed by the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), FUSE provides affordable supportive housing with wraparound support services to stabilize individuals in the community.
