North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

A Dollars and Sense Strategy to Reducing Frequent Use of Hospital Services

Launched in 2002, the Frequent Users of Health Services Initiative was a six-year joint project of The California Endowment and the California HealthCare Foundation, with program direction and technical assistance provided by the Corporation for Supportive Housing. The Initiative included six pilot programs designed to test new models of care for "frequent users" of hospital emergency departments.  Through grant making and intensive programming, the Initiative focused on building a more responsive system of care to decrease frequent users' avoidable emergency department visits and hospital stays. - See more at: http://www.csh.org/csh-solutions/serving-vulnerable-populations/health-systems-users/frequent-users-of-health-services-initiative/#sthash.Yxsbmber.dpuf
