ISSUE BRIEF

Post-Acute Care Transitions for the Homeless

In response to grantee interest, UniHealth Foundation commissioned research to highlight organizational roles and responsibilities for care transitions within the Medi-Cal delivery system in Los Angeles. Desert Vista Consulting completed over thirty interviews with provider, social service, management service organizations and health plan leaders serving homeless Medi-Cal members. This research is summarized in a UniHealth Foundation Issue Brief, which highlights how, along with respite care and housing, engagement in and linkage to care and case management services is critical for successful post-acute transitions from the hospital to the community.
