Candid Discussion on Reducing Health Inequities: Is Technology the Answer?

11:30am - 12:30pm Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W320

Description

Significant effort and funding have been allocated to addressing the challenges represented by Social Determinants of Health.  Previous approaches have met with limited success due to a lack of coordination and deployment of point solutions, which fail to address the issues within affected communities.  Furthermore, effort-driven approaches lack breadth of information and perspective on the issues they are attempting to analyze.  
 
This session will focus on how to disrupt the market by developing a safe, trusted consumer centric health experience.  This experience is key to creating an environment conducive to bending the curve in cost of care and improving health outcomes.  A panel of leading industry experts, each of whom is active in driving new approaches to sustainable change, will discuss challenges and solutions in areas such as:
• How health inequities, malaise policies and access to care barriers contribute to rising maternal and infant mortality among African Americans and how community programs can help turn the tide
• How diffusion of technologies to rural populations remains stagnant and contribute to poor outcomes and how programs can be developed to overcome these limitations
• How collaboration with trust brokers and community partners can extend the impact of health programs in specific communities

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the parts of person-centered solution for an SDoH barrier
  • Compare and contrast their own strategies, approaches, and solutions with that of the end-to-end, person-centered model
  • Assess existing gaps in their own models for SDoH intervention
  • Select and suggest areas and activities for improvement in their SDoH program upon return to their organizations
  • Implement a method to determine that new solutions are person-centered
