2023 Together - IE228 - Social Solutions: A Focus on Food and Housing - On Demand
This session will feature 2 case studies highlighting transferable successes:
UC Davis Medical Center will present on how food insecurity can contribute to poor health outcomes for patients and high healthcare costs. We have developed an innovative framework to address food insecurity that includes building partnerships based on trust, leveraging innovative technology to obtain social needs data, using this data to guide screening efforts, developing closed-loop referrals with community-based organizations and beginning to prescribe food as medicine.
OHSU offers houseless patients placements in hotels and independent living facilities with social work support to facilitate safe and timely discharges, thus freeing up hospital beds for new admissions. This intervention also gives houseless patients the opportunity to continue post-hospital healing, connect with outpatient medical care and work with social work staff to improve housing prospects. Presenters will also discuss observed effects on ED utilization, readmission and patient and staff satisfaction.
- Healthcare Quality Professionals
- Pharmacy Technicians
- Other Healthcare Professionals
Describe how transitional housing affects houseless patients’ emergency department utilization, readmission rates and patient experience.
Identify impacts of food insecurity on patients’ disease progression and healthcare utilization risk.
