About the Webconference

Hospitals and health systems with high volumes of homeless patients face a need to address the unique care coordination issues for this vulnerable population. Leaders at Yale-New Haven Hospital partnered with a local shelter, Columbus House, to develop a medical respite program for homeless patients.

Join leaders from Yale-New Haven Hospital and Columbus House to learn how they implemented their medical respite program—and how they're successfully reducing readmission rates for homeless patients through this program.
