Stepping Outside the Acute Setting to Improve Population Health
To tackle affordability, hospitals are expanding their role in their communities.
Social determinants of health are among the greatest barriers to addressing affordability and improving the health of a population.
Recognizing that they cannot improve population health on their own, hospitals are engaging with other commu¬nity partners to promote healthy behaviors and address social determinants of health.
Hospitals and health systems are stepping outside their traditional acute care role and adopting approaches to preventive health that engage people where they live, work and play.
To help patients with complex needs, providers are investing in approaches aimed at preventing diseases or complications such as case management, post-hospital home visits and clinics on wheels.
