Left unaddressed, patients’ social issues can drive excess health care spending. Nearly 80% of emergency room visits by homeless patients could be prevented through primary care, and nationally, annual health-related costs attributed to food insecurity totals $155 billion. Care providers and health insurance providers agree that focusing on social determinants of health (SDOH) is crucial in managing clinical and financial outcomes for patients.

Join us for a webinar with Ken Leonczyk, Jr., Executive Partner and Client Success Partner at the Advisory Board. Ken will present insight on the growing scope of SDoH and health equity, especially as members in all lines of business have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Join this discussion to hear about:

  • How Covid-19 has exacerbated social needs for members in all lines of business
  • The archetypal ways health insurance providers can become an effective SDOH leader
  • Case studies of health insurance providers’ initiatives to address social needs and health disparities
