Use cases

Value-based care

Addressing social factors is vital to achieving the patient outcomes needed for value-based care arrangements. Use SDOH risk scores to understand member utilization patterns, find and fill care gaps, and refine risk scoring.

Care coordination

Address barriers to care, connect patients to community resources, improve medication adherence, and better understand dynamic patient needs.

Chronic condition management

Social circumstances can block the 164 million U.S. residents living with a chronic disease⁵ from effective use of health services. Use SDOH risk scores to address care gaps and avoid preventable disease progression.
