The WPC pilot's focus is to provide culturally competent patient engagement, activation, care management, and support strategies necessary for complex Health System "High Utilizers: facing substantial barriers to connect with needed medical, social, and housing services.

This Care Navigator will work extensively with incarcerated individuals prior and after incarceration and then following these individuals in community settings; perform a wide variety of intake, referral and care coordination services including assessment, evaluation, tracking, and support services for "high utilizers" (nine or more incarcerations per year and three or more Emergency Department visits) of the Health System and Corrections. This includes clients who are in jail, homeless, and disengaged from the healthcare system; may be alcohol and/or substance users, mentally ill and/or have complex and co-occurring disorders and multiple medical conditions.
