MHPA Webinar: Using Clinical and Social Risks to Improve Patient Outcomes

When: March 31 at 2:00 PM

In Partnership With: 3M

Presenters: 3M Experts Gordon Moore, M.D., and Melissa Clarke, M.D.

Description: Ensuring equality and addressing health disparities is nothing new for Medicaid health plans. But recently, it has received more attention at a federal level with the new administration and CMS issuing guidance to empower Medicaid to address social determinants of health to drive improved health outcomes. These actions have created an opportunity to build a new framework that can improve health outcomes for the most vulnerable by addressing both clinical and social risk factors.

Join 3M experts Gordon Moore, M.D., and Melissa Clarke, M.D., on March 31, as they discuss how to use data to target both individuals and communities facing health care disparities in ways that align with successful value-based care strategies.

Attendees will learn how to:

•  Continue building efforts that improve access to affordable, quality care and achieve health equity

• Use analytics that combine social and clinical risk to assess whole person care

• Identify and target more clinically vulnerable populations through social risk and create a model to achieve improved outcomes

• Coordinate and align value-based programs with equity initiatives to advance patient outcomes and program performance
