Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the social and economic factors that impact health outcomes. The impact of SDOH on health outcomes is significant, as these determinants can affect a person’s ability to manage their health conditions and prevent chronic diseases. Unfortunately, many individuals face barriers to accessing healthcare services due to these factors, creating an SDOH care gap.
There are 5 major social determinants of health, and They are:
1. Economic Stability
2. Education Access and Quality.
3. Health Care Access and Quality.
4. Neighborhood and Built Environment.
5. Social and Community Context.
Each of these determinants can be assessed in various risk categories via a series of interview questions by the providers. Upon completion, the providers can determine if clients are at no risk, High risk, or somewhere in between. These determinants are to be reviewed periodically and depending on risk level changes, the care plans have to be modified and new goals and interventions are set by providers.
Myadultdaycare software has all the necessary tools for providers to build assessments, calculate risks and report data to various authorities upon demand. The analytical tools can also help understand better if the participant’s health risks are lowered or not, for effective care planning and servicing.
In conclusion, MyAdultDaycare software is an innovative solution that can help providers with compliance and reporting requirements as per the CMS guidelines for the SDOH care gap, which can help promote better health and well-being for their participants.
