TAVHealth's CEO is scheduled to present, 'Social Determinants in the Delivery of Healthcare', at 11am on February 28th. Social Determinants of Health are an increasingly important topic as payers and providers seek better outcomes at lower costs. More than half of the cost associated with maintaining health involves the social, financial, physical, and psychological aspects of an individual's life, but seldom considered when treating patients. "Despite the fact that we spend more on healthcare than any other nation, our outcomes don't show it. Until Social Determinants of Health are included in caring for patients, we'll continue to struggle with lagging outcomes, higher cost, and a frustrating patient experience", commented Jamo Rubin, M.D.
The field of healthcare is undergoing a paradigm shift. Providers are making the transition from pay-for-service models to more patient-friendly, pay-for-value models. Individuals are becoming more engaged with their healthcare providers. Payers have begun to reimburse based on the merits of value and outcomes, due to technology and new methodologies. The future of U.S. healthcare will involve the significant impact of the Social Determinants of Health.
TAVHealth offers software and service solutions to connect the power of people, community resources, and technology to solve the Social Determinants of Health in order to improve patient experiences and health outcomes while reducing the costs of care.
