CLIP: Health Organizations Tackle Social Determinants at US News Panel (US News)

Health care experts, including ACHP’s Eva Powell, discussed their efforts to improve outcomes at both the patient and population levels during a session this week at the U.S. News Healthcare of Tomorrow conference in the nation’s capital. Panelists explored the role that health care organizations can play in addressing social determinants, while also acknowledging the need to partner with other local organizations.

“The community has to come up with its own solutions, and health care has to be there to help them in partnership,” Powell said. “I think the leadership portion absolutely is an essential, but followership is an essential as well – they go hand in hand, and that’s not an easy thing, I think, for health care.”
