Whole Person Care provides comprehensive healthcare to people experiencing homelessness and other patients with complex medical and social needs. Whole person care serves thousands of vulnerable patients each year through case management, housing services, street outreach and street medicine, and the implementation of California Advancing and Innovating in Medi-Cal (CalAIM). The Whole Person Care program has been recognized state-wide for its innovative programs to meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness and has demonstrated a measurable impact on health outcomes for participants including reducing emergency room/hospital utilization, reducing readmissions, improving timely access to mental health and substance use treatment, and improving control of hypertension, COPD, and diabetes.
Under the supervision of the Chief Medical Quality Officer for Ambulatory care and in conjunction with the Director of Complex Care Management and Systems Integration, the Whole Person Care Physician lead would provide clinical guidance, conduct program development, and provide direct clinical care to support the Whole Person Care Program.
The ideal candidate is a physician who is passionate about providing high quality care for people experiencing homelessness and other patients with complex needs. This physician should thrive in a dynamic, interdisciplinary team, value health equity, and be interested in developing innovative services for whole person care patients across settings. The whole person care physician champion will spend approximately 50% of their time providing direct patient care in a county primary care clinic and approximately 50% of their time doing programmatic whole person care work, some of which will also be clinical.
