Patient Contextual Data
What if we knew more than just 10% of what patients wanted to talk about?
A patient’s context, including social determinants of health, shapes health experiences, outcomes, and costs in profound ways. We know from research, and our shared experience in the clinic, that a patient’s context is inextricably linked with their health: Context, — including environment, social and economic factors, and health behavior, — is estimated to determine 80% of a person’s modifiable health outcomes. When patients have unmet needs or have competing priorities they are less likely to have control of her chronic medical conditions, are more likely to miss scheduled outpatient appointments, and more likely to have preventable visits to the emergency department or to be hospitalized. Context, — including environment, social and economic factors, and health behavior, — is estimated to determine 80% of a person’s modifiable health outcomes.
In our work, we are learning how to effectively and scalably collect and analyze contextual data surrounding patients to drive improvements in health and equity.
