Whole Person Care: Joining Forces for Care Coordination

Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Launched through California’s Section 1115 Medicaid waiver, the Whole Person Care (WPC) pilot seeks to improve care for people with complex issues by meeting their full spectrum of needs — medical, behavioral, and socioeconomic. In 24 counties, WPC unites public hospitals, behavioral health providers, Medi-Cal managed care plans, social services, and community partners — often for the first time — to strengthen care coordination and improve health outcomes among the highest-risk patients.

Participants learned about the WPC program’s goals and structure and heard from leaders in two of the largest counties piloting the program: Los Angeles and Alameda counties. Speakers shared lessons learned, barriers to implementation, and promising solutions.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
• understand the goals and structure of California’s Whole Person Care (WPC) pilot program;
• identify barriers to WPC implementation, as well as promising solutions; and
• reflect on how you might apply lessons from WPC to your own program or policy work.
