What Are Health Related Social Needs?

Are you a community-based, clinical, payer, public health, state, or government organization sharing data to increase access to health and social care?  If so, you know that health related social needs impact individuals differently.

While payers and providers routinely speak in medical terms— engaging with care systems can be intimidating for consumers and patients. NinePatch software supports interoperability between health care, behavioral health, mental health, and social care organizations to support vulnerable and high-need populations.

NinePatch health related social needs software closed loop feature eliminates the guesswork of who last saw an individual or the services provided. SDOH assessments in the program simplify identification of social care needs that translate to health risks. The program offers reporting for SDOH data, like z codes, that can be translated to ICD-10 and CPT codes to substantiate outcomes for reimbursements.

Social Determinants of Health

Social determinants of health (SDOH) significantly impact the well-being of persons with economic and social needs, chronically ill, and aging populations. Yet, addressing these factors can be challenging without coordinated support between health and community providers.

Studies show that only 20% of health results from access to healthcare services. The remaining 80% is attributable to non-medical factors, such as health behaviors, socio-economic conditions, and the physical environment. By using health related social needs software, organizations can address needs that have the greatest impact.
