The County of San Mateo Health System is excited to be able to offer a unique job opportunity to well-qualified individuals for the position of Social Work Supervisor as part of a new and innovative pilot program--the Whole Person Care Pilot.
Whole Person Care (WPC) is a new and innovative pilot facilitating the transformation of San Mateo County's service delivery system by working with public and private partners to create efficient and effective processes and programs benefiting our high utilizing and high need Medicaid clients and the experience of staff providing these services.
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. The WPC pilot's goal is to improve patients' health and well-being through more efficient and effective use of resources that are not covered by Medi-Cal and by providing the right services, at the right time, and at the right place.
