Moving Clinics Upstream - Forward Planning: Addressing Food Insecurity from the CBO Perspective

CCI Webinar

Molly Rafferty 0 485

As we kick off the new year, we’ll hear from a few community-based organizations that are working to address food insecurity in Los Angeles. They will discuss how they have had to pivot due to the coronavirus pandemic, how they envision their work changing in 2021, and what opportunities exist for health clinics and CBO’s to collaborative to address food insecurity in a post-COVID world.

We hope hearing lessons learned and considerations about what comes next from a CBO perspective will help you think about how best to move your MCU work forward, and what opportunities may exist to build or strengthen partnerships to address social needs. Leveraging our analogous example mindsets, teams will be able to gather inspiration and insights that can be applied to social needs even beyond food security.

This webinar is open to all MCU participants but not required for the whole team. We encourage participation from team members or organizational staff that are involved in the planning and implementation of social needs strategies. This webinar is also open to the general public and we invite you to pass this webinar opportunity to others in your network.

Leveraging Telehealth to Address Social Determinants

NCTRC Webinar

Molly Rafferty 0 1631

Advances in technology and telehealth not only have the potential to increase access, diversify revenue, and decrease social determinants of health but will also help integrate social care back into the health care landscape. As the healthcare industry is shifting from fee-for-service to value-based care, planning, implementing and enhancing telehealth as a service delivery model will be a crucial part of the puzzle in ensuring that we are on the leading edge and not the bleeding edge of reimbursement strategies.
 

Federal Activities and Approaches to Advance Social Determinants of Health Data Use and Interoperability in Support of Community Health Centers

HITEQ Highlights Webinar

HITEQ Center 0 1893

Health centers now report on social determinant of health screening activities and many use the PRAPARE tool for this purpose; for years, however, health centers have focused on the broader health and social needs of the individuals they serve often making referrals to community based organizations and utilizing available enabling services. Today, there is growing interest and awareness on the value and use of interoperable social determinants of health (SDoH) data to support individual, community, and population level health improvement. View this HITEQ Center webinar, where the The Health and Human Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT present on the current state of federal activities and standards based approaches for collecting, sharing, and using SDoH data with a focus on technical and policy considerations. The presentation describes available standards, tools, and initiatives for health center use and input.

Advancing Interoperability: Social Determinants of Health

ONC Workshop

Molly Rafferty 0 1959

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) hosted the Advancing Interoperability: Social Determinants of Health Workshop, a one day virtual workshop on Monday, September 21, 2020. As part of ONC’s collaborative approach for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), the objective of this workshop was to convene health care and human services providers from various professional societies to understand their approaches to integrating SDOH data into value-base care and to discuss tools to accomplish these goals and the challenges to reaching them. This workshop also provided stakeholders information and tools needed for the development of the social determinants of health data management in clinical practice guidelines and maintenance of certification activities.

In the fall of 2019, four new Interoperability Needs were added to Section I: Social, Psychological, and Behavioral Data representing drug use, food insecurity, housing insecurity, and transportation insecurity of the Interoperability Standards Advisory (ISA).  Many of the standards or specifications are at production for the implementation maturity level and are still requesting feedback. Incorporating social determinants of health such as those included in the ISA in health care models is of increased interest when it comes to value-based payments. More payers are developing novel ways to address SDOH issues, however providers still struggle with the collection of SDOH data and how to use and share the data in an interoperable and beneficial way that is not burdensome. This workshop provided attendees the opportunity to share any advancements in standards that are being used which may or may not include standards included in the ISA.

Community Health Center Inc. and its Weitzman Institute are excited to announce its new series:

The Path Forward: The Digital Transformation in Social Determinants of Health
Moving from Screening to Solving for Social Needs

While the webinar series includes the latest research, its primary focus is concrete, actionable solutions that solve for social needs that result from adverse SDoH. It does this by surfacing innovators and disruptors working in the SDoH/social needs field – specifically, companies that are creating new, evidenced-based products rooted in the efficient use of the latest technology, AI and data.

The Path Forward: Transportation

Weitzman Institute Webinar Series: The Digital Transformation in Social Determinants of Health

Molly Rafferty 0 1768

Adequate and reliable transportation services are fundamental to healthy patients and communities. Lack of transportation can have a significant impact on one’s health and on the ability to make healthy lifestyle choices, such as regular physical activity, access to healthcare, ability to purchase healthy foods, and ability to maintain social connections. Further, a lack of transportation is the leading cause of patient no-shows for medical appointments, leading to delayed care, increased emergency room visits, increased costs for patients, and disruption in patient care and provider-patient relationships. The problem is widespread. The AHA reports that each year 3.6 million people do not obtain medical care due to transportation issues. Fortunately, the non-emergency medical transportation industry is going through a transformative period. Listen to this group of exciting innovators and disruptors who are creating powerful technology-based solutions to move from screening for transportation needs to solving for them.
