Activate Care Expands Presence in California, Providing Social Risk Management Technology and Services to Address Medi-Cal Population SDoH

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Activate Care®, a leader in social risk management solutions, today announced that it is further expanding its presence in California, adding Central California Alliance for Health, Monterey County and Health Plan of San Joaquin to the list of organizations that have chosen its CareHub platform to proactively manage the social determinants of health (SDoH) of their population.

Active Care offers everything communities need to improve outcomes for their at-risk populations by providing a community care records platform that enables a network of community partners to deliver and coordinate critical care based on social factors.

A Growing Need to Proactively Respond to SDoH

Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes and quality of life. With estimated medical care to take into account for only 10-20% of modifiable contributors to healthy outcomes for a population – and the remaining 80-90% are SDoH – it is essential that we identify solutions and tactics to address these conditions before they send someone to the emergency room.

As a leader in social risk management, Activate Care enables organizations to engage those identified as high risk for one or more SDoH and design a standardized care plan tailored to their specific risk factors.

“At Activate Care, we fundamentally believe that technology can drive meaningful change, if designed and operated correctly – and for the right issues,” said Ted Quinn, CEO and co-founder of Activate Care. “In the United States, we can provide the best health care in the world, but the way we currently do it is misaligned. By leveraging technology, data, and the right resources, we can redirect that 80% of medical care spent on SDoH today, improve health outcomes, and improve care delivery. Working with our partners, we are achieving quantifiable results, such as a 28% decrease in chronic homelessness and a 54% reduction in calls for emergency transportation services. »
