The Foundation's initiative, Building Health Systems for People with Chronic Illnesses, was designed to find models of caring for people with chronic illnesses that will overcome the fragmentation, financing barriers, and episodic care of the current system.The purpose of this project is to offer a unique and replicable model for the delivery and financing of integrated services. A managed care system will be established for this high-cost chronically ill population by bringing together housing owners and health care providers (i.e., primary health care, mental health and substance abuse treatment, and specialty care) who often serve the same consumers, but rarely work together. The grantee expects to provide integrated, flexible services, establish appropriate capitation rates, reduce categorical funding limitations, and document the cost-effectiveness of the intervention.
