By laying a solid data foundation and leveraging tools like virtual triage, healthcare organizations can take significant steps toward providing equitable care, according to Renee Broadbent. In this piece, she talks about the progress SoNE Health has made, and what still needs to happen.
There’s no doubt that social determinants of health are vital to patient health. What’s not so obvious is how clinicians can fit another set of questions or screening tools into the workflow, says Renee Broadbent.
Tracking social determinants of health can enable organizations to better plan and manage population health initiatives, says Renee Broadbent. But before that can happen, we need to understand these factors.
While there is no blueprint for value-based care that can fit the needs of every organization, there are components that need to be included in any framework, says Renee Lizotte-Broadbent of UMass Memorial.
Although technological components like a robust analytics infrastructure play a key role in the transition to a value-based care model, they’re not the most important element, says Renee Lizotte-Broadbent.
