High Utilizers of Virginia (HUV)

Project Summary

Project Overview

The Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services (DBHDS) has contracted with Community Based Care Coordination (CBCS) to launch the High Utilizers of Virginia (HUV) program. The HUV program launched Dec 1, 2021 in Northern Virginia.

The program emphasizes:

In-person engagement with individuals at time of program enrollment

24/7/365 program access for enrollees, including crisis availability

Close coordination with the Collective Medical tools

Engagement and coordination with local resources

Close follow up with enrollees after every provider encounter

Care Plans customized to each enrollee and shared in real-time

HUV Program Goals Include:

o Improved enrollee care.
o Decreased duplication of care efforts across the healthcare community.
o Reduction in mental health admissions amongst enrollees.
o Reduction in general hospital admissions amongst enrollees.
o Reduction in ED visits amongst enrollees.
o Reductions in cost of care amongst enrollees.

HUV program staff work closely will all existing resources that connect with our common patients. HUV staff do not perform clinical duties, nor do we intend to replace any existing resources. Our goal is to serve as a glue that helps fill in the gaps of care that currently exist for patients, and to help make existing resources more effective in their efforts.
