Robert Kahn, M.D., MPH Cincinnati; Connecting Medical and Social Services to Address Social Determinants of Health
When a child came into a Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Community Health clinic in 2010 to be treated for asthma, the doctor treating him did not stop at prescribing medication. Carefully trained to ask about social determinants of health, the doctor inquired about the child’s home and living environment. His mother responded that she had requested an air conditioner to ease the child’s asthma, was denied and feared being evicted if she pressed the issue. She asked the doctor if there was anything they could do to help. The provider referred her to the Legal Aid Society.
Making the Juice Worth the Squeeze
Watch the recording from our virtual event where HealthDoers reported out on our key takeaways from our January Peer to Peer, The Intersection of Clinical Data, Claims and the Social Determinants of Health: Integrating Multi-Sector Data to Create Health Out of Healthcare. Additionally we included takeaways from an NRHI Member Data Governance Roundtable Discussion. This event also provided us with the opportunity to hear about the transformative work being done by some of our partners.
