Utilizing Tools and Resources to Optimize Care for Residents of Public Housing

Since 2014, all health centers must report whether or not they are located in or are accessible to public housing on the UDS report (table 4, line 26). This requirement necessitates an assessment of a health center’s accessibility to public housing, but it also prompts health center staff to consider the ways in which patients who are residents of public housing are engaged and cared for both within and outside of the clinic walls. In order enhance care for patients who are residents of public housing, health centers need to assess their patient population, work with community partners, and seek opportunities to expand programming for patients and their families.
