NEW YORK, NY (June 18, 2019) — Healthify and Landmark Health (Landmark) announce a groundbreaking, collaborative partnership to address the social determinants of health (SDoH) for complex, chronic patient populations across 13 states — California, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington.
The partnership marks a significant milestone in Landmark’s mission to deliver comprehensive care to patients wherever and whenever they need it. Healthify’s nationwide coverage and scalable implementation methodology will support Landmark’s ability to meet their patients’ needs as they expand into new cities and states. Landmark joins a growing community of providers who are working closely with Healthify to address SDoH, such as transportation, food, education, employment and housing, in at-risk, vulnerable communities.
“Because our patients are living with multiple chronic conditions, they face higher healthcare needs. To achieve positive health outcomes for this vulnerable population, it is imperative that we go beyond clinical care to meet their social needs,” shared Landmark Chief Behavioral Health Officer Chris Dennis, MD. “By partnering with Healthify, we hope to give our interdisciplinary team the best tool to quickly locate and refer patients to community-based services and improve the well-being of every Landmark patient.”
Through the partnership, Healthify will support Landmark’s SDoH initiatives by implementing access to a nationwide electronic database of more than 426,000 resources. With Healthify, social workers will be able to track the status of those referrals and through a comprehensive reporting dashboard, demonstrate improvements in patient health outcomes as a result of specific SDoH interventions.
With Healthify’s enterprise solutions, Landmark aims to:
- Operationalize organizational SDoH strategies in multiple markets across the country
- Improve health outcomes and lower the cost of care for complex and chronically ill patient populations
“Implementing Healthify’s SDoH solutions to support Landmark’s goals is a vital next step in the movement toward value-based care,” shared Healthify CEO and Cofounder Manik Bhat. “Landmark is a key leader in meeting the needs of complex, chronic patient populations across the country and with the announcement of this partnership, Landmark continues to demonstrate their commitment to delivering quality care.”
