Social Determinants of Hype

There’s a lot of attention around solving social determinants of health. However, many of these issues do not follow the health care paradigm and are related to how hard “the system” is to navigate. Erine Gray, the founder and CEO of Aunt Bertha, will share data and insights about how health systems and health plans are partnering with community-based organizations and health plans to collectively address some of these needs. In this session, you’ll see insights about what patients worry about when they’re alone and when they’re sitting with a doctor or talking to a care coordinator. Using data from cell phone searches, data from kiosks on the streets of New York and the user experience of tens of thousands of social workers navigating for patients nationwide, Gray will share insights and trends that will help you ask the right questions and frame the discussion differently.
