SDoH data for health and savings in the Golden State

For California organizations, data analytics can unlock insights into healthcare’s greatest challenge: SDoH and the medical costs of populations they impact.

As the state’s top institutions move towards value-based care, data will be the difference between playing catch-up with tertiary care costs and proactively helping California’s most vulnerable groups, preventing costly issues before they arise.

The goal? Keep people healthy before they get sick, and keep costs low. That’s where we come in. 

The challenge

You're spending money on SDoH. Is it working?

Incomplete population health data equals opportunities lost. CalAIM asks participants to view healthcare needs “through whole person care approaches and social drivers of health.” At Arcadia, that means dashboards that incorporate SDoH data from housing insecurity to transportation access, so you can understand the challenges and approach them thoughtfully.

EMR and EHR systems alone don’t provide longitudinal data or population health workflows, and in value-based care, these tools are essential. Relying on traditional sources like claims also isn’t enough — the lag in reporting means means missing critical data and the best window for intervention. Toggling between disparate systems can cost you time-sensitive opportunities.

How can you go from millions of data points to holistic care, at the individual and population health level?

The solution

See populations in 20/20 to take action and save

With 12 distinct SDoH categories — from social adversity to job insecurity — and a commitment to data quality, Arcadia’s mission is to deliver insights that drive meaningful change. Picture your system’s data in crystal-clear detail, with the context that lets you take action where it will impact your populations most.

Free up internal teams to do meaningful work (instead of manually analyzing patient records). Spend that valuable time discovering insights, then surfacing them at lightning speed via interoperable records, from care management teams to CIOs.

California providers don’t have time for inefficiency, and staff workloads are at an all-time high. Arcadia goes where other data analytics platforms won’t, placing SDoH data in context with a holistic view of populations. The end result? You can step in when and where it’s most effective, in terms of cost and patient health.

Advanced risk adjustment analytics close risk gaps with accurate, comprehensive data.

Health equity? Yes. Sweat equity? No.

Take the toil out of population health discoveries. Arcadia delivers insights straight to your desktop, so you can allocate your budget where it makes the most impact. Nationwide, Arcadia’s partners have implemented creative solutions that lead to healthier lives and more efficient delivery of care.
