The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative® (GHHI®) recently released “Sustainable Funding and Business Case for GHHI Home Interventions for Asthma Patients.” HMA partnered with GHHI to create the publication which assesses ways in which effective, comprehensive home interventions can be integrated with the healthcare system payment structure.
The report identifies sustainable health-related funding streams for asthma-related home interventions, looks at payment structures, and examines the business case for healthcare payers to fund these services. HMA Managing Principals Jack Meyer, Gaylee Morgan and Mike Nardone explored medical payment models and other funding streams related to health based housing.
This report is the first in a series of GHHI papers that will address new pathways for sustainable funding in alignment with the healthcare system as GHHI works to advance the dialog about housing as a platform for health. The Osprey Foundation and the JPB Foundation provided support for this report.
The GHHI is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the link between unhealthy housing and unhealthy residents. Formerly known as the Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning, GHHI replaces stand-alone housing intervention programs with an integrated, whole-house approach that produces sustainable green, healthy and safe homes.
