Technology Transforming the Impact of SDOH Programs

February 22, 2023

Seeing a community’s health gaps and opportunities is no easy feat. Seeing the social health needs at the household level is very challenging…but this is where Amit Kale, Vice President at Highmark Health, believes we need to start to help members live healthier lives.

Amit Kale MD, MHA joins the podcast to talk about the opportunities and challenges of addressing social determinants of health from both an insurance member and product approach and a community-based investment approach.

  • How do you identify those with social risk at the household and individual level?
  • How do you prioritize the type of intervention or social “domain” to focus on?
  • How do you build, test, and measure interventions to know if they impact health outcomes, utilization, and the broader health care ecosystem?

Those are the questions we will discuss on this episode.
