Whole Person Care


Whole Person Care (WPC) is a five-year, multimillion-dollar Medi-Cal waiver program awarded to San Francisco to improve outcomes for adults experiencing homelessness and high users of urgent emergent healthcare services. Learn about the 25 counties in this five-year pilot that California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) selected to participate.

These funds provide for new resources and enhance services as described in Pilot Overview. Department of Public Health (DPH) is working in partnership with the Departments of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH), Human Services (DHS), and Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), both Health Plans and a network of community-based services as described in Ecosystem of Care.

Through service delivery innovations and data sharing technology solutions, San Francisco aims to establish a comprehensive, seamless and human-centric system of care that improves beneficiary’s health outcomes and supports the goal of making homelessness rare, brief, and one-time.

We first studied the tools and technologies used across the city in our Current State Report. From this analysis we developed San Francisco’s Future State Vision.
