As reimbursements shift from volume based to value based, healthcare organizations are becoming more responsible for providing the resources necessary to meet the needs of a given population. Aligning quality of care with services that address social and environmental factors becomes pertinent to healthcare organizations’ bottom line. It is imperative for healthcare leaders to develop programs that offer underserved communities an opportunity for a healthier tomorrow. Panelist discussion will focus on:

  1. How will a focus on social determinants of health reduce overall healthcare expenditures?
  2. How can organizations adequately screen for unmet social, economic, and behavioral needs? What is the best way to disseminate the assessed data?
  3. How will shifting to a focus on social, economic, and behavioral factors increase equality of access and care in these communities while controlling costs?
  4. What new model(s) and/or organization(s) have taken the lead in addressing social and economic disparities in our region?
  5. What costs are associated with adapting to a value-based payment model?
  6. How is the community (employers, health departments, non-profit organizations, community groups, etc.) helping to identify and address social, economic, and behavioral needs?
  7. How can healthcare leaders successfully bring patients on board to manage their own health and ultimately maintain a healthier population?
  8. Describe the importance and types of metrics used to measure the effectiveness of programs that address social, economic, and behavioral needs?
