What is SourceOut?
A SourceOut location is a customized Wellness Home that provides on-site primary healthcare and case management to residents in a multi-unit residential setting. Generally speaking, our SourceOut locations partner with Senior Independent Living communities, but can also serve any organization seeking to provide wellness & health services to residents under their care. With the input of the participating agency's leadership, Wellness Homes of Chicago will design a comprehensive menu of services to be provided by a medical professional who is wholly dedicated to the needs of your community.
These culturally sensitive and trauma-informed services will ensure that no matter the background, situation, or social determinants of a client, the Wellness Home will provide them with important Wellness & Health resources in a convenient and familiar setting. The Wellness Home site could be located in a specific location within the partner offices or could travel to several partner sites per week as needed.
SourceOut services that can be offered at any partner site include the following:
How It Works
A SourceOut Wellness Home could be located within a specific property or building, or it could be a ‘traveling’ service that spends time in several of your residential buildings or schools on a fixed schedule. It would be staffed by a Wellness Provider and supported by our company’s lab services, dedicated pharmacist, electronic medical records, scheduling software and other infrastructure. While not intended to replace critical care services, a SourceOut location will be able to provide your staff and program participants with the resources of any other infectious disease or internal medicine provider. In fact, the SourceOut location can serve as a Primary Care Provider should anyone in the partner community require one. (We are also able to offer Rapid COVID-19 tests with our Community Testing and Assessment team for your entire staff on a weekly basis, as well as access to vaccination services for COVID-19.)
The partner organization’s program participants will have a chance to get to know their providers and see for themselves that we are both proficient and compassionate. Above all, we are committed to providing a warm and engaging environment for people to learn how to increase their wellness and avoid illness in a proactive and sustainable way. Primary Health Care is often only reactive in nature; our Wellness Homes are designed to serve the whole person: Mind, Body, and Soul.
There are many possible benefits that could come from our proposed collaboration, regardless of whether we build a central Wellness Home on-site or have our staff go travel from site to site. Benefits of this collaboration could include:
We look forward to sharing ideas with your dedicated health and program staffs about this possible partnership; we have a lot to learn about your community and how we might be able to best provide value to them.
