Homelessness has become one of the most significant and challenging social problems facing communities across the United States. The lack of housing goes hand-in-hand with a myriad of severe health conditions. Homeless service providers, Medicaid agencies, and other community health providers share a common goal — to provide services for the most vulnerable individuals in their communities.
On June 21-24, 2017 Eccovia Solutions will be attending the National Health Care for the Homeless Conference in Washington D.C. This annual event focuses on how combining supportive housing, case management, and healthcare treatment improves the health of homeless individuals and reduces the cost to communities.
On June 22 at 10:30 a.m., join Sam Taylor, Director of Solutions, HHS and Public Sector for Eccovia Solutions for his session “When Medicaid and Housing Data Meet: Some Things Are Just Better Together.” In this session, Sam will discuss the success of three different organizations in using housing and Medicaid data to coordinate care for individuals experiencing homelessness. He will also share best practices for getting started with sharing data between housing and Medicaid programs.
We hope you can join us in Washington D.C.
