About This Webinar

Health insurance providers are witnessing a rapid increase in demand for post-acute and home-based care and recognizing the important role these play in addressing health disparities. Reliance on multiple resources to ensure members’ medical and health-related social needs are met on a timely basis, especially following hospitalization, can lead to a disconnect between providers and suboptimal member care. Innovative approaches to post-acute care are needed to improve health outcomes, overall well-being, and affordability.

This webinar will address

  1. Current approaches to post-acute care management and social determinants of health (SDOH) services
  2. What a 360-degree view on post-acute care can achieve in terms of health outcomes, gap closures, and cost-of-care goals
  3. The societal impact of member-centered care

Attendees Will Learn About

  • The surprising impact extending SDOH services to members enrolled in home health had on cost-of-care for one large health insurance provider
  • What the future of health care looks like as hypotheses about community-based medical and health-related social services prove out
  • Why forward-looking health insurance providers are recognizing the importance of a proven partner focused on connected, whole-person post-acute care
