CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inside Digital Health™, a trusted digital resource that delivers information that healthcare decision makers and physicians need to confidently navigate the digital transformation, will host a live webinar on “Hospitals and Homelessness: Reducing ED Visits and Addressing Social Determinants of Care” on Thursday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. EST.
“The disconnect between medical care organizations and their surrounding communities is a gap that healthcare providers have long yearned to bridge,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., the president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of Inside Digital Health™. “We are eager to have Becky Wilkinson participate in this timely discussion by presenting this educational webinar to outline key development methods for social determinants of health programs.”
To help explain the importance of social determinants of health programs (SDOH) — or the nonmedical contributors to a patient’s health, such as environmental and socioeconomic factors — Providence Health developed a program to address these nonmedical contributors. As the head of the Providence Health SDOH program development, Wilkinson will serve as the featured presenter of this webinar.
Throughout the webinar, Wilkinson will use the success of the Providence Health SDOH program to share key insights on the correlation between SDOH and patient wellbeing. Strategies for case-management optimization on the period of transition of patients from hospital to home will be discussed. With limited resources top-of-mind, Wilkinson will share both challenges and noteworthy methods for developing a successful SDOH program. The webinar will also offer several approaches for building collaborative relationships between healthcare organizations and communities.
Wilkinson, MSW, CSWA, is the outreach program manager at Providence St. Joseph Oregon Regional Behavioral Health Better Outcomes thru Bridges Program.
