There are numerous challenges to capturing accurate data to identify people experiencing homelessness. This session will describe progress made, importance FQHC's play in the provision of quality health services to vulnerable populations, strengths of Medicaid redesign, and the benefits of collaborative relationships with universities.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe two challenges of defining homelessness using administrative data. 2. Compare the health and health care of homeless patients with that of housed patients seen in health centers. 3. Evaluate different strategies about how to build strong community-based coalitions to work and negotiate with government regulators. 4.
