Shawn Bassett, Executive Director Collaborative Health Systems at WellCare Health Plans, discusses how having access to social determinants of health data enables them to take a holistic view of patients, including behavioral, mental, and social factors, to address gaps in care in real time.
Care coordination and management offer strategies to support and deliver the right care at the right time and in the right setting to more effectively and efficiently manage health conditions. Success can depend on the timely and accurate exchange of information between participants in the care continuum, including patient and member, various care providers involved, and health plans.
Value-based care and the potential impact of the social determinants of health encourage providers and risk-bearing organizations to better coordinate and communicate care plans. Doing so supports high quality of care for the patient and helps reduce high-cost clinical episodes.
