  • The Most Effective Tool for Patient Engagement

    From the patients’ perspective, health care can be a complicated system with many layers of connection between a myriad of entities — providers, pharmacy, allied professionals, billing, marketing, insurance networks, and more. But, at its most essential distillation, the business of health care is centered around the relationship between the patient and caregiver. And, the most essential part of any relationship is communication.

    Health care providers and payers need to communicate with their patients and members, and effective communication can make the difference between completed healthcare programs and programs that are ignored.

    In this white paper, see how the proprietary Engagement and Communication Channel Preference Scores from CentraForce Health help health systems and health plans improve patient outcomes.

    We Can Do Better Than Social Determinants of Health

    In the last two years, Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) have become top-of-mind for everyone in the healthcare industry, from providers and payers to health IT and analytics policy makers. This conversation centers around the idea that it’s simply not enough to look only at a population’s health records — those events which have occurred inside of a provider’s office — in order to make the best possible decisions about their care. The average patient goes 4,000 hours between primary care visits, and it’s essential to understand what is happening during these times in conjunction with the information that appears in a traditional health record in order to provide value-based, high-quality care.

    Large-scale data providers have attempted to fill in these gaps with publicly available SDoH demographic information that show tendencies for patients with certain levels of income, race, zip code, and health status. Although this data is an important piece of the larger puzzle, SDoH data is incomplete and unhelpful for several reasons.

    Some of the most successful organizations have started to realize that they must shift away from providing “healthcare” and start delivering “well-care” before they can reap the full rewards of risk-based financial arrangements.

    Yet at a time when more and more Americans are struggling with chronic diseases, it may feel almost impossible to get ahead of healthcare’s perennial foes: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, COPD, and behavioral health issues.

    In this white paper, see how CentraForce Health offers unique, powerful, and actionable insights into patient propensities by mining previously untapped data, giving healthcare organizations an unprecedented edge in the prediction and management of preventable chronic disease.
