In our last video, we discussed how employers could have a more direct impact on social determinants by addressing the individual and social needs of their employees and families. Today, we're focusing on the six ways Springbuk is using social determinant data to drive informed population health strategies within their member populations.
These six strategies include:
1. Integrated analytics: bringing all of your data together for a full population view
2. Improved efficiency of care: having a better understanding of root causes of inefficiencies within your plan utilization
3. Design benefits: building benefit plans that meet the needs of your whole population
4. Informed interventions: influencing engagement and communication of care management and wellness initiatives
5. Personalized communication: customizing communication for both improved engagement and comprehension
6. Assessing risk: better assess the risk of your specific health outcomes and patterns of use
Springbuk is uniquely positioned to lead our clients in designing impactful population health strategies with our health intelligence platform that uses key data that we're already ingesting through eligibility and payroll data, in addition to the use of publicly available sources of information on social determinants that can further enhance the analysis.
In our next video blog, we'll discuss how to apply these six strategies to your data. If you're interested in learning more about social determinants of health and Springbuk's perspective, be sure to download the e-book we've linked below:
