Health and Housing Funders’ Forum Webinars
The Health and Housing Funders' Forum recently hosted a panel of experts that spoke about two successful Housing Based Services Models (HBSMs):one in Vermont and one in Oregon, and their importance in addressing the social determinants of health, promoting population health and advancing health care systems change.
According to a rigorous independent evaluation of Vermont's Support And Services at Home (SASH) model by RTI and LeadingAge, the model is reducing the rate of growth in Medicare spending significantly, while improving health and access to care. In Oregon, the Housing with Services model brought together a partnership of housing development organizations, the state's largest Medicaid insurance provider, and several nonprofit social service agencies. A study completed by Enterprise Community Partners and the Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CORE) reports on Medicaid savings.
