2017 Healthcare Benchmarks:
Community Health Partnerships

This alignment of care and resources ranges from providing transportation to doctors' appointments to scheduling EMT visits to visit the homebound elderly following their hospitalization. Working in tandem with community groups addresses social determinants of health (SDOH) and produces clinical and financial benefits that are recognized and rewarded by today's value-based healthcare reimbursement models.
