Helping Communities Address Health Inequality
One of the biggest challenges our communities face is ensuring organizations have the right resources to drive significant and positive change to the health and well-being of those that need it most. On top of that, linking individuals to various community support programs can be difficult. It can seem like the more disadvantaged a population, the lower its health outcomes.
So how do you change the cycle of health inequality? It starts with having the right information, possible through longitudinal organization, collaborative communication and robust reporting.
Positive change starts with Social Determinants of Health
Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) are the conditions in the places where people live, learn, work and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of resources at national, state and local levels. SDoH are mostly responsible for the unfair differences in health status seen within our communities. By continually monitoring conditions such as employment opportunities, public health programs and access, education opportunities, housing stability, etc., communities can better focus policies and resources to improve health at the individual and population level, and advance health inequity.
Community CareLink case management software provides community organizations with the data-driven tools needed for tracking SDoH within various community populations. This powerful information allows organizational leaders to create meaningful programs and direct resources to areas within the community that will provide the most positive impact to the overall health of those they serve.
Community CareLink allows for the monitoring and reporting of standardized scoring for SDoH needs. With a quick resources search, case managers can find and create referrals to community organizations that can best address the specific SDoH needs of a population.
