The Chronic Care Plus Program, a joint venture recuperative care pilot developed by the Illumination Foundation and St. Joseph's Hospital in Orange County, Calif., aims to provide community-based stabilization for medically vulnerable chronically homeless patients. Now an actual facility, the pilot program saved $2.8 million each year over a two-year period. During Intensive Care Coordination for Healthcare Super Utilizers: Community Collaborations Stabilize Medically Vulnerable Homeless Patients, a December 2016 webinar now available on-demand, Paul Leon, CEO, Illumination Foundation, shared the inside details of this program that bridges the gap between hospital discharge and permanent supportive housing for homeless patients and closes gaps in care, reduces healthcare utilization and generates substantial savings for program partners.
