The COVID-19 pandemic uncovered and highlighted many structural inequities in the U.S. healthcare and economic system. These components, often captured by Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) data, contribute to a person’s overall well-being, and include one’s neighborhood and local environment, health and healthcare, social and community connection, education, and economic stability.
Social Determinants of Health also play a key role in helping providers understand the complete health of their patient populations, especially those covered by Medicaid, and can help them proactively address societal or economic factors that will negatively impact health. But this data is notoriously difficult to find, store, and utilize in the context of the US healthcare data environment.
Listen to hear Dr. Rich Parker, Chief Medical Officer, Arcadia and Jacob Hochberg, Director of Customer Insights, Arcadia, discuss key strategies to identify Social Determinants of Health data and incorporate it with clinical data to enable proactive care strategies for vulnerable populations. You will learn how to:
- Leverage SDoH data to augment care plans for a Medicaid population
- Balance successful clinical and financial levers while caring for a Medicaid population
- Capture and utilize SDoH data using various mechanisms
