Making connections between clinical and social needs

In 2019, Humana continued to build consensus on standards for screening of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) in San Antonio. Humana is now reinforcing those efforts with a new project to build a social health access referral platform. In hand with our community, we’re excited to test this innovative approach that addresses both clinical and social needs for our members. The challenges, stress and health concerns created by the COVID-19 pandemic on the community, providers and patients makes the work we are doing and the connection between clinical and social health factors more essential. Food insecurity continues to be the most significant and growing challenge among our community. Humana continues to support the efforts of the San Antonio Food Bank to meet the needs of those most impacted by the pandemic.
