Health Navigation Services
The primary goal of Health Navigation is to promote individual and community-wide health and well-being. By reaching people where they live, WNHS is in a unique position to create a “medical neighborhood” in which Health Navigators offer services and resources targeted to the needs of low-income individuals, including seniors and families, living in WNHS housing. Services will focus on:
- Enrolling WNHS residents in IHN-CCO and providing navigation support for the open enrollment process.
- Connecting residents with PCPCH accredited Medical Homes, helping residents to attend to preventative health appointments and screenings within the health care system.
- Addressing other social determinates of health such as financial stability, nutrition, access to early childhood education (and other education, GED, etc.) and healthy affordable housing.
