Integrating Health & Social Services: How can the relationship between hospital and community partners combat rising healthcare costs, prevent emergency room visits, ensure prescriptions are being filled and properly taken, fight against chronic disease and support healthy aging? How can organizations like Age Well be an integral and proactive piece of the healthcare puzzle? Few people in healthcare question the role that social needs play in one’s health. Dr. Michael LaMantia will discuss the growing interest, momentum, and possibility of putting this understanding into practice for providers, including how we can effectively move the dial towards creating an integrated model.
