Our ninth year of organizing Population Health Innovations has led to a re-branding overhaul, for that reason Strategic Solutions Network is proud to introduce the 9th Annual SDoH and Health Equity Innovations to Transform Population Health Summit scheduled for May 17-18, 2023 in Orlando, Florida. Our speaker line-up consists of illustrious and well-respected Health Plans, Innovative Providers and Physician Groups, numerous Community-Based Organizations, and policy makers shaping the direction of this rapidly changing social and patient-centric industry. Specific areas we will focus on include:

    SDoH and Health Equity Initiatives:

  • Changing affordable housing systems to support the health of marginalized communities

  • Adopting effective food insecurity strategies and Medically-Tailored Meals (MTM) for long term and sustainable outcomes

  • Actionable strategies to eradicate health disparities among diverse populations

  • Complying with the latest regulations and policy shifts shaping SDoH

  • Assessing the latest PRAPARE methodologies

  • Community-Based Organizations, Collaboration Models, and Wrap Arounds:

  • CBO reimbursement obstacles and ROI

  • Leveraging programs and partnerships with the most effective and trustworthy CBOs

  • and finding methods to uplift, support, and improve their efforts
  • Utilization of Z codes for SDOH

  • Identifying new community needs and gaps in care

  • Care and Case Management Coordination Efforts:

  • Tactical steps to achieve health equity in infant/maternal mortality rate disparities

  • Implementing successful post-acute care partnerships

  • Focusing on behavioral health, mental health, and substance abuse initiatives as they correlate with physical conditions
    Community Education & Outreach:

  • Accurate community needs assessments: data analysis and profiling vs. the community voice/surveys

  • Taking a life course approach to advance education and career equity

  • Creation and implementation of grassroots movement to improve mother and child health inequities
    Technology & Data Analytics:

  • The art of data collection and interpretation in SDoH and health inequities

  • Data integration systems: Attaining interoperability and inter-departmental communication for accelerating quality of care
As the population becomes more diverse over time, health plans, providers, and community- based organizations are finding innovative ways to narrow the gap of care for SDoH and health disparities. In order to narrow this gap, health plans and providers need to take a hard look at the current measures they have in place to address health availability and affordability for improved whole-person care. With progressive regulatory and social pressure mounting, it is no longer an option. The leading industry experts we have assembled for our 9 th Annual SDoH and Health Equity Innovations to Transform Population Health Summit will walk you through a step-by-step approach to meet those new and mounting demands.
