Social determinants greatly impact a patient’s health and pro-actively addressing short comings in these areas offer promising avenues to generate tangible results.
FORT WASHINGTON, Pa. (PRWEB) November 15, 2017
RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise claims processing software for healthcare payers, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, The Social Determinants of Health: Understanding and Influencing Key Predictors of Health Outcomes.
Social determinants of health (SDOH) represent the conditions in which we live, work and grow old. They shape our daily life and greatly influence our health. There are many aspects of SDOH including Lifestyle factors (smoking, diet, exercise), Socioeconomic factors (finances, education, access to healthy food, housing) and Environmental factors (pollution, noise). Together these factors influence our health almost as much as medical care and are ripe to be included in an overall value-based insurance design to help improve member health while reducing overall costs.
“Health plans need to actively identify ways to improve outcomes and prevention is at the top of that list,” said Robert A. Tulio, President of RAM Technologies, Inc. “Social determinants greatly impact a patient’s health and pro-actively addressing short comings in these areas offer promising avenues to generate tangible results.”
