The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has indicated that social determinants of health (SDoH) are not just an adjunct element to our health care ecosystem, but increasingly drive the definition of health care.
“The evidence is clear: Social determinants of health, such as access to stable housing or gainful employment, may not be strictly medical, but they nevertheless have a profound impact on people’s wellbeing.” – former CMS Administrator Seema Verma
3M recently launched 3M™ Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) Analytics, a technology platform that allows health care providers and payers to prioritize care and allocate resources for high-risk individuals and patient populations.
How? With more than 35 years of experience working with clinical data using 3M™ Clinical Risk Groups and 3M™ Potentially Preventable Events, 3M provides expertise that, when integrated with Socially Determined’s social risk metrics, allows for integrated clinical, social and population health analytics at scale. 3M SDoH Analytics provides a complete picture of an individual, community and delivery network.
In a system where health care professionals are called on to manage the impact of social risks on the health of individuals and high-risk populations, the 3M platform helps plans to stratify clinical and socioeconomic risk resulting in analytics that are far better in describing and predicting need than either one in isolation. And the financial and human implications can now be better quantified, empowering customers to take data-driven action.
With 3M SDoH Analytics, it is easier than ever to make the connection between patients, their health and the community organizations that can best support them.
Are you ready to reimagine care delivery to be more equitable for everyone?
As we head into 2021 after an unprecedented year, in an industry already plagued with disparities in access and inefficiencies in delivery, we are anticipating how care delivery needs to be reimagined to create a new framework to reward better care.
3M Health Information Systems has introduced a new technology platform that allows health care providers and payers to prioritize care and allocate resources for high risk individuals and patient populations. 3M™ Social Determinants of Health Analytics (3M SDoH) combines clinical, social and population health data to create a complete picture of patient health.
What problems can be solved when health plans collaborate with each other rather than compete? In this podcast from Inside Angle, we explore Project Link, a forum that brings health plans together to understand the impact of social determinants of health (SDoH) on their members. Michelle Jester, executive director of social determinants of health for America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), describes innovative approaches to solving SDoH challenges achieved through health plan communication and collaboration.
