Overview

Quality healthcare is more than visiting a provider and receiving treatment for an illness. Many people can’t even get to a doctor appointment, or if they do, they may be unable to follow their treatment plans. How can providers improve health for individuals that are facing barriers to accessing the healthcare system such as poverty, lack of transportation, or lack of adequate housing? Collecting Social Determinants of Health data is a first step to identifying people who need help and working to establish programs to assist them.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Identify Social Determinants of Health (SDOH).
  • Describe the importance of capturing SDOH data.
  • Understand how accurate documentation and coding contribute to accurate data capture and reporting.
  • Gain strategies to engage providers and coders in the importance of SDOH and how it benefits their organizations and communities.
