Two Sides of the Same Coin: Addressing Social Determinants of Health and Enabling Services Data Collection (2019). Resource Type: Archived Webinar. Description: As health centers are held accountable for cost containment and high quality of care under value-based pay arrangements, it is increasingly important for providers to document the social determinants of health (SDoH) barriers of their patients and what services they are providing (both clinical and non-clinical) in order to properly care for those complex patients. Some of these services are called enabling services (ES), defined as non-clinical services that aim to increase access to care and improve health outcomes. Standardized data collection on SDoH and ES are two sides of the same coin and provide the foundation for health centers to succeed in a value-based pay environment. This not only helps them address root causes of poor health, but also highlights the value of the health center model. More Details...
