Resource Summary: Health centers and housing providers are serving the same clients, and HUD policies foster opportunities for partners to effectively share data target and improve Health Outcomes. This series translates federal housing policies to help health centers understand the impact and how to coordinate and adapt programming to create the most beneficial outcomes for clients.
Resource Details: Health centers are increasingly addressing the social determinants of health for their patient population through partnerships and linkages to local housing and service resources. Matching data from the homeless crisis response system to claims data from health centers is one way to identify and engage individuals in both systems who are experiencing homelessness and medically vulnerable.
