Assessing Readiness to Incorporate SDOH into Health Centers
Presented by: Association of Clinicians for the Underserved and Capital Link
Health centers have always been innovators, at the forefront of negotiating numerous opportunities and challenges in providing care to complex patient populations. In today’s health care environment, how can health centers best prepare to continue that legacy of innovation? What considerations should health centers evaluate before embarking on a new initiative focused on addressing social determinants of health? Before you begin a new program, join this webinar to explore the operational, financial, and workforce implications of incorporating social determinants into your health center. Presenters will explore a framework for organizational readiness to take on work that might require substantial collaboration, financial resources, and new requests of an existing team of staff and clinicians. Presenters will share real health center examples of these types of service expansions, free resources for evaluation, and suggestions for starting various levels of interventions to improve diabetes outcomes at your health center.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify major financial and workforce considerations for implementing a new program focused on addressing social determinants of health, particularly diabetes management.
- Describe the operational impact of developing new programs, and best practices to mitigate risk and minimize challenges.
- Access resources and evaluation tools.
