Plans, Community Orgs Need to Share Data to Tackle Social Determinants of Health

As health insurers rapidly expand their technology divisions and ally with tech companies to create population health and business insights, many health care leaders have expressed a hope that new technologies and insights can help tackle social determinants of health (SDOH). Those tools hold great promise, according to experts, but must be paired with old-school, community-based coalition building to be successful.

During a panel convened for a Dec. 6 Milliman Inc. webinar, health tech experts from organizations including Independence Blue Cross and Microsoft Corp. agreed that population health and equity insights can’t move the needle on SDOH if they aren’t paired with grassroots coalitions.
