Description

How care coordination, and social determinants of health focus, can meaningfully impact the health care cost curve

Speaker: Amy Vreeland, Chief Commercial Officer, ACT.md

A simple concept is gaining momentum in healthcare: how can we effectively care for a patient if we are not caring for the whole patient? We know that quality health outcomes are 40% driven by social and economic factors, and only 20% by clinical care, yet 88% of the healthcare spend in the United States is on medical services.

Our healthcare system is beginning to widen the view of a patient’s needs beyond what happens in an emergency room, clinic, or doctor’s office. For many people, traditional medically-focused interactions with their healthcare providers are not sufficient because they do not treat the personal, behavioral, or financial issues in their life that may stand in the way of achieving their full health potential. The use of the phrase Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) has become commonplace in healthcare policy and strategy, evidence that innovative care models should consider non- medical issues such as nutrition, housing, transportation, medication adherence, and home assistance to truly influence outcomes and the cost of care.

EHRs, and even Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) don't meaningfully support care team collaboration or closing the loop on social referrals, to bridge the gap between health systems, community-based organizations (CBOs), service agencies, and families.

Lunch will consist of Caesar salad and your choice of the following entrees:
-Double Breast of Chicken-roasted, white wine, mushroom, leek and thyme
-Barbeque Scottish Salmon Fillet-mushrooms, barbeque glaze
You will make your selection at the time of the event. However, if you require a vegetarian meal, please let us know in advance.
