Reading Hospital

As payors and providers continue to develop programs to address the social determinants of health (SDoH) to improve health outcomes, many organizations are beginning to see the ROI associated with whole-person care. One of those organizations is Reading Hospital.

Reading Hospital launched a program to assess whether systematically identifying and addressing the health-related social needs of local Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries would impact total healthcare costs and utilization. They turned to Healthify to help implement the program.

Initial results from the program are promising. Unnecessary emergency department visits declined by 15% for Medicare and Medicaid patients.*
