"SD United" Launched in San Diego in partnership with USD

After a six month development effort to build the region’s first care coordination technology platform designed specifically for military and veterans and their families, the Vets Care Coordination Steering Committee with support from 2-1-1 San Diego has formally launched “SD United” on Monday, February 6, 2017.
 
Leveraging the work of groups like the San Diego Veterans Coalition, and the region’s Peer to Peer hub at Courage to Call, SD United is implementing a care coordination network aimed at improved access for our Veteran/Military Families, and enhancing the rich community collaboration in our sector. Built on the fundamental pillars of collective impact, this network is being built across 13 key community service areas affecting our military and veteran community with shared outcomes to ensure that resources are best deployed to ensure no one falls through the cracks. The goal of SD United is to build and maintain with quality and efficiency a trusted Care Coordination system that results in long-lasting and impactful results and easy access for our military, veterans and their families.
