National Approaches to Whole-Person Care in the Safety Net
This White Paper is the first of two papers that seek to identify policy recommendations and next steps for advancing whole-person care for California’s vulnerable populations. This paper is based on a review of published articles and gray literature on delivery system transformation models that touch on whole-person care concepts, with focus on dual-eligible demonstrations, safety-net accountable care organizations, and Accountable Care Communities. It is supplemented by interviews with state officials and safety-net providers in nine other states and draws on preliminary research conducted in five California counties.
This White Paper is composed of five sections and introduces the reader to the concept of whole-person care through a six-dimension framework, as well as provides examples from across the nation that are promoting and implementing whole-person care approaches through various delivery system models and funding mechanisms.
