The Center for Care Innovations (CCI) partnered with Cedars-Sinai to support ten clinics in Los Angeles to build the capabilities needed to assess and address Social Determinants of Heath (SDOH) in a program called Moving Clinics Upstream (MCU). Social determinants have a major impact on health outcomes—especially for the most vulnerable populations. Factors such as a patient’s education, income level and environment must be considered when providing treatment and care.
In the Addressing Transportation Insecurity: Concrete Advice From Clinic Leaders’ article, four clinics from the program share detailed, practical suggestions for addressing transportation insecurity, one of the components of SDOH, whether an organization is just starting out, expanding its work, or introducing change during a healthcare crisis. We hope you enjoy their insights! You can access the article here.
