Targeted Support for Improved Outcomes
This partnership goes beyond simply providing access to resources. By leveraging Socially Determined’s sophisticated social risk data and analytics, healthcare organizations using Uber Health’s platform can now:
– Precisely identify individuals with the greatest needs: Utilizing real-time data on social determinants of health like food insecurity, transportation barriers, and lack of social support, they can pinpoint those who would benefit most from targeted interventions.
– Align available benefits with eligible members: With access to patient benefit data, healthcare providers can confidently match patients with the appropriate resources covered by their insurance, ensuring effective utilization of existing benefit structures.
– Empower engagement and address daily challenges: By removing the everyday hurdles of transportation, food access, and medication availability, patients and families are empowered to focus on their health and engage more effectively with their healthcare journey.
– Enhance access to healthcare and food resources: This partnership extends the reach of healthcare beyond the clinic walls, ensuring communities have equitable access to vital resources that contribute to overall well-being.
– Improve health and healthcare outcomes: Ultimately, this collaborative effort aims to break down barriers to care, leading to better health outcomes, reduced healthcare costs, and a more empowered healthcare experience for vulnerable populations.
“For years, our payer and provider customers have utilized our social risk analytics to better understand and address the challenges their members and patients faced every day. And now we’ve developed purpose-built analytic models designed explicitly for Uber Health’s key benefits that immediately help identify those individuals with the greatest need for each benefit,” said Trenor Williams, Co-Founder and CEO at Socially Determined. “Once our payer and provider partners know who needs assistance and what specific challenges need to be addressed, they require a partner to help mitigate those risks and eliminate those barriers. Uber Health’s knowledge, approach and ubiquitous network provides the perfect partner for our analytics and allows our customers to drive measurable, improved outcomes and member experience.”
