Advancing and Codifying Health Equity and Wellness for Medicaid Populations
June 4, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EST -It’s widely recognized that social determinants of health (SDOH) have a significant impact on mortality and morbidity. Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) play a significant role in addressing SDOH factors that drive health disparities and poor health outcomes. CBOs are directly connected to the populations they serve and commonly address an array of overlapping clinical and social service needs. However, CBOs face many challenges creating meaningful partnerships with health care organizations (HCOs) and health plans. Addressing these challenges is important so CBO contributions can be scaled through a more integrative and inclusive approach within the healthcare system.
During this webinar, experts from the Disability Policy Consortium (DPC) and the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health (AAIUH) will join HMA to discuss the recent issue brief, which details lessons learned from CBOs in New York and Massachusetts.
