- Conference Opening: Breakthrough Opportunities to Improve Care and the Social Factors that Make Patients Sick in the First Place
Rishi Manchanda, MD, MPH
The early work in the upstream movement has focused on improving the individual social needs through integration in health care settings. A more recent focus strives to transform and improve relationships not only between caregivers and patients but also between health systems and the larger community and social structures that influence health. As this movement matures, institutions, multi-sector collaborative and entire communities face similar challenges. How do we take a bundle of interventions purporting to address a variety of social needs and social determinants and shape them into a cohesive strategy that can achieve long-term health and financial impact for patients and communities? Dr. Manchanda shares insights and answers from the front lines of the upstream movement.
