The Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to approve cost-neutral personnel and budget adjustments for the Division of Whole Person Care and approve corresponding budget actions. The Whole Person Care pilot presents an opportunity to develop and test new approaches to improve health outcomes, especially among populations whose health and well-being is significantly affected by the social determinants of health (including a lack of housing, employment, or social support). Staff recommends the addition of six full-time-equivalent staff positions but no increase in ongoing staffing for the department; the proposed actions do not increase net County costs.
The Board approved the personnel and budget adjustments.
