Add to calendar


Health plans are among the various stakeholders seeking to improve health and reduce costs by intervening on social determinants of health (SDOH). Humana Health Plan launched its Bold Goal Initiative in 2015, a population health strategy focused on addressing SDOH and the health-related social needs of its members and communities. Multi-sector partnerships pay special attention to food security and social connection, with the intent of improving holistic health and health-related quality of life. Researchers examined the community-level effects of this initiative using data from a national, longitudinal survey of community health networks collected during 2012-2018. Learn how a health plan-sponsored initiative can stimulate substantial changes in community-level organizational networks with the potential to benefit enrolled plan members as well as the public at large.

Presenters: Glen Mays, PhD,  Director of Systems for Action and Jessica Dobbins, DrPH, Associate Director of the Office of Health Affairs and Advocacy at Humana
