Building on the success of our Population Health Series, SSN is proud to present our 10 th Annual SDoH and Health Equity Innovations to Transform Population Health Summit, scheduled for May 14-15, 2024, at The Rosen Plaza in Orlando, Florida. The 2024 speaker lineup consists of illustrious and well-respected Health Plans, Innovative Providers and Physician Groups, numerous Community-Based Organizations, and policy makers shaping the direction of this rapidly changing social and patient-centric industry. With an increasingly diverse population, social pressure rising, and progressive regulatory changes ahead, the time is now for improved SDoH programs and health equity progression. The demand has never been greater as health plans and providers are being held to a higher standard and called to respond to advanced SDoH and Health Equity initiatives. How are health plans, providers, and community-based organizations working together to find innovative ways to narrow the gap of care for SDoH and health disparities? A complete overhaul is taking place in the industry from member engagement to data infrastructure and everything in between. Find out what other health plans are doing to narrow the gap and measure meaningful impact. The leading industry experts we have assembled will walk you through a progressive approach to meet those new and mounting demands.
