TAVHealth solves for Social Determinants of Health with its community collaboration platform, TAVConnect. Too often, providers are unaware of the hurdles patients face as they transition out of the hospital or clinic (no transportation, can't afford medications, social isolations), and these circumstances can derail even the best care plans. TAVConnect's workflow and sharing tool creates coordination and accountability for everyone involved in a person's journey back to health. This coordination and accountability improves outcomes, lowers cost, and provides for a better patient experience. To learn more about TAVHealth, visit www.TAVHealth.com.
