Co-Designing Social Care: Payers and Providers

Co-Designing Social Care: Payers and Providers

Social conditions significantly affect health and well being at the individual and population levels, contributing to health inequity in the US. Research shows organizations that connect people to community resources–childcare, jobs, housing, nutrition, and transportation–measurably improve the overall health of the population and can impact up to 80 percent of health outcomes.

The delivery of social care services in connection with healthcare requires new systems to organize the relationships and activities of healthcare payers, providers, community-based organizations (CBOs), and community members.

This panel will discuss integrating social care into healthcare delivery and the need for the organized delivery of social care services, including care coordination, through a multi-stakeholder health and social care ecosystem, as part of a whole-person approach to health.

Topics include:

  • Engaging consumers in social care
  • Coordinating care across the ecosystem
  • Partnering with CBOs and other social services organizations
