2022 Stronger - PH323 - One Health: Building A New Ecosystem of Care for the Uninsured - On Demand
The current health care system is not adequately structured to serve people with complex health and social needs. Individuals experiencing poverty, lack of insurance, homelessness, hunger and violence often use the emergency department (ED) as their main or only source of care. One Health was designed to improve the health of our uninsured and medically and socially complex frequent utilizers and to bend the financial cost curve. By addressing identified social risk factors and engaging with community partners in new ways, the program has demonstrated sustainable health improvements, a significant decrease in inappropriate ED utilization, and a positive and significant impact on the organization’s financial performance.
