An Innovative Approach to Improving Healthcare Outcomes for Vulnerable Populations and Lowering Costs

As healthcare providers navigate the shift to value-based care and other alternative payment models, regulators acknowledge the impact that social and behavioral determinants of health (SBDoH) can have on improving a person’s wellbeing and lowering healthcare costs. Unfortunately, our current healthcare system is not set up to support a widespread model for payers and providers to address and directly reimburse for providing SBDoH related services.

Learn about an innovative vendor partnership model grounded in community-based intervention that is proven to improve health outcomes, lower costs and address health inequities for our most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations, allowing for both provider and payer to capture measurable value from their investment.
