Integrating SDOH into Population Health

December 1, 2022  |  1:30 EST  |  1 Hour

A RISE Association Webinar in Partnership with Centauri Health Solutions

The “H” in SDOH Also Stands for “HIE”
Conveniently attend the webinar virtually from your office or home!

Health information exchange (HIE) is experiencing significant growth and change, brought on by the effects of the pandemic, increases in population growth and demographic shifts, and government policies directed toward improving healthcare for all citizens. As the recipients of a myriad of data connections and data types, HIEs are leaders in interoperability and are poised to reap the benefits of the socioeconomic changes that are critical to shaping the future of health equity. HIEs are proven to be excellent data sources that can support the needs of both the provider and the payor. HIE data is increasingly valuable for care management programs which are essential to closing care gaps, addressing SDoH considerations, and supporting a robust population health strategy.

However, socioeconomic disparities continue to impact access to healthcare and ultimately influence health outcomes. Unfortunately, traditional medical care addresses only 10% of the controllable contributors that make a population healthy. No matter how excellent, efficient, and collaborative care is inside a health system, ensuring a positive patient outcome is not always guaranteed. Positive patient outcomes depend on many clinical, non-clinical, and social resources – from effectively utilizing population data to managing skilled nursing facilities, pharmacy controls, home health, medical equipment providers, homeless services, and transportation. 

Good healthcare relies on good data. Delivering the data needed to meet health equity, population health, and SDoH is not just the responsibility of one entity – government, payers, providers, and communities are all involved. They all have shared responsibility – and they do not operate in silos. Integrating SDoH into population health is a multifaceted approach requiring both a retrospective and prospective risk and quality strategy that also takes management of referrals, data, and care into consideration. Clinical data delivered in the right way improves health equity and supports business activities, such as care/case management, quality reporting, care coordination, population-based analytics, and predictive risk assessments.

As the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) moves more aggressively towards value-based payment and quality reporting programs, the need for clinical information will continue to increase. Beyond clinical care, which only accounts for approximately 20% of health status and outcomes, regulators, providers, and payers are increasingly focused on socioeconomic wellness factors as key to influencing a person’s health and wellbeing. With federal incentives now based on outcomes data – such as those given by private health plans and CMS – healthcare practitioners are motivated to meet SDoH considerations and demonstrate improved quality of care, better outcomes, and reduced hospital readmissions.

The topics at a glance that will be discussed are:

  • Learn how clinical data delivered in the right way improves health equity and supports business activities, such as care/case management, quality reporting, care coordination, population-based analytics, and predictive risk assessments.
  • Discuss the role of technology solutions in improving multi-stakeholder collaboration across the clinical, non-clinical, and community resources to close care gaps, improve health outcomes, and better address SDoH to advance overall population health equity.
  • Understand the tools and strategies needed for accessing and using population data when implementing SDoH programs and risk and quality care gap closure activities.
  • Hear how an end-to-end post-acute care management platform is collaborating with multiple health data contributors to support SDoH within its patient population.
  • Learn how to acquire and effectively use the clinical data you have to improve SDoH outcomes and realize a return on investment.
