FUSE connects homeless individuals to housing

At a November 5th Steering Committee meeting, representatives from the Frequent Users System Engagement (FUSE) program presented the program to WHI leaders. Key FUSE architects—Laurie Ingram, Carol McCabe, and Megan Takashima—shared that the program’s goal was to house homeless individuals who frequently seek care in local emergency departments (ED). At this meeting, the FUSE team requested that the WHI help the project secure funding from health systems. The group outlined the program’s potential to reduce healthcare costs by reducing emergency department visits. The WHI would help secure funding and support data analysis for the rest of the FUSE project.
