Implementation of a Behavioral Health Program in a Street Medicine Setting

Healthcare in Action (HIA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit medical group that provides street-based primary care and social services to people experiencing homelessness. HIA follows a street-medicine approach to care, providing full-scope primary care, comprehensive case management services, and housing navigation to patients in whatever setting they prefer. HIA has 11 teams across California that utilize medically equipped vans to bring traditional brick and mortar clinical services to the street. In addition to primary care services, HIA supports patients with navigating social and housing services through case management provided by Community Health Workers, Peer Navigators, and Housing Navigators.
