How Utah 2-1-1 Can Help Address the Social Determinants of Health

Live Networking Event Tuesday, August 20 11:30-12:30 P.M. M.T.

The strong association between unmet social needs and undesired health outcomes (like hospital readmissions) means that health care providers need to consider addressing these needs to optimally provide whole-person care and improve outcomes for patients. This is especially true for providers like hospitals and primary care practices who are engaged in value-based contracts or are otherwise at risk for penalties or payments based on the health outcomes of their attributed patient populations.

Join Comagine Health and Utah 2-1-1 on Tuesday, August 20 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. MT to learn about mechanisms for linking your patients to community services to address unmet social needs, such as housing, transportation, food insecurity, or referral to specialty services for mental health or substance use.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:

• Describe the links between social needs and health outcomes.
• Identify resources available via Utah 2-1-1 and how to link patients with social needs to community-based organizations.
• Describe a strategy to integrate social needs assessment and linkage into current care delivery processes.

Utah 2-1-1’s mission is to inform decisions, build connections and empower Utah. 2-1-1 seeks to serve three groups of people - people who need help, the people who help people, and those that make policy or funding decisions that affect people who need help. During this webinar, we will describe what Utah 2-1-1 does, how to connect with Utah 2-1-1, and the various mechanisms available to help you link your patients to services across Utah (widget, smartphone app, website, hotline).
Even if you are just thinking about getting started on screening and referral for social needs, please join us for this informative discussion!
