Improve Total Health with Social Needs & Personal Health Data

  • August 20, 2019
  • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
  • Online

Just as people cannot be summed up by one condition, they also can’t be summed up by one data point. Health care is transitioning to manage the whole person rather than a single disease state – meaning a single social determinant or health measure is not enough. How are organizations unifying these data to inform better individual interventions and improve analysis of population risk?

Speakers will discuss how marrying social determinants of health data and patient-generated health data can provide deeper insights into individual or population health.

Attendees will learn:

  • Why integrating data from outside the clinical setting is critical to inform better care
  • How to integrate SDOH data and PGHD effectively within clinical systems or care management workflows
  • The ways in which these data can lead to better interventions, more effective population health initiatives, and more meaningful care delivery to improve outcomes and decrease costs
