Social Determinants of Health
Addressing non-clinical risk factors
ProgenyHealth’s proprietary approach addresses social determinants of health to improve maternal and infant health outcomes.
Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) or social drivers play a pivotal role in shaping overall well-being, particularly during critical life stages such as maternity and neonatal care. The recognition of non-clinical factors influencing health outcomes is essential for providing comprehensive, whole-person care. ProgenyHealth addresses the challenges of SDoH through a proactive and collaborative approach via its Maternity and NICU Case Management teams.
Challenges of Social Determinants of Health:
SDoH challenges such as access to transportation, stable housing, nutrition, and health literacy significantly impact health outcomes. For expectant mothers, birthing individuals, infants in the NICU, and new families, these factors can pose challenges that extend beyond clinical care, impacting their daily lives.
ProgenyHealth’s Proactive Approach to Social Determinants of Health:
ProgenyHealth has developed a proprietary approach to tackle SDoH challenges by fostering collaboration, coordination, and communication across various disciplines and departments. This approach involves proactive identification of non-clinical risk factors and frequent member outreach to ensure potential gaps in care are identified and addressed promptly.
Key elements of ProgenyHealth’s solution include:
- Collaboration with Health Plans and Local Resources: ProgenyHealth facilitates collaboration with health plan offerings and programs, as well as local social resources and services. This partnership creates a network that identifies, addresses, and solves for the non-clinical needs of mothers, infants, and families.
- Comprehensive Support: With proactive and frequent outreach, case managers and social workers solve for social determinants like transportation, shelter, food insecurity, emotional well-being, and more. Ongoing support enhances the overall health and well-being of the mother, infant, and the family.
- Local Resource Connections: ProgenyHealth’s NICU and Maternity case management teams connect members to essential local services, ensuring that tailored, non-clinical needs are met.
