Social Determinants of Health: Technology and Workforce Approaches
The social determinants of health - defined as the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age - influence 50% of health outcomes. Recognizing that addressing unmet social needs can have an outsized impact in improving health, leaders are leveraging technology and nonmedical professionals to meet people where they are.
This webinar will explore:
- A national initiative bringing together public health stakeholders to systematically implement and sustain social determinants of health efforts
- An innovative federal model testing whether addressing health-related social needs of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries improves outcomes
- How a health plan is partnering with social workers to help patients with housing, transportation, utilities and more
