Social Determinants of Health
Today we are experiencing an honest effort to tear down the information siloes to feed into community-based care. The community care hubs, Medicare Advantage, and the ACO REACH models are showing real promise in building collaborations in whole person care. Most importantly, our nation cannot afford to continue to finance healthcare with an open checkbook.
Social determinants of health play the leading role in determining what treatments succeed and those that fail so focus on the root causes with social and behavioral health interventions. Addressing health inequities and the related social determinants of health to curb medical cost and improve the nation’s quality of life should not have been this long and hard. REUNIONCare was built for this moment years ago. I am pleased we are now finding product market fit.
