The Role of Employers in Healthy Communities

The inability to address factors that promote health can become a community-wide issue, resulting in higher healthcare costs and reduce worker productivity for employers, particularly in businesses with a significant number of low-wage workers. Social data is invaluable information for healthcare service providers to aid research and investment decisions, monitor stigma, learn about treatment preferences and look at different industry perceptions. An industry example of progress is Aetna has developed an analytics tool (set to launch in early 2020) that will quantify the probable impact of social determinants of health on an employer’s health plan results. Learn how this partnership between employers, social service agencies and tech entrepreneurs made this possible.
