March 13, 2014 – Dr. Rishi Manchanda, President/Founder of HealthBegins, presented on the potential role of social determinants of health in improving the triple aim – i.e. better healthcare quality, population health outcomes, and lower costs. The presentation provided examples of how healthcare professionals, equipped with the tools, technology, and training, can engage colleagues and community stakeholders in developing care delivery interventions that address social determinants of health. Finally, it presented participatory training and “Community Health Detailing” models to describe approaches that can help healthcare systems achieve the triple aim. The presentation was given as part of the HIV Community and Research Colloquia Series hosted by the Los Angeles County (LAC) Commission on HIV and the UCLA Center for HIV Identification, Prevention, and Treatment Services (CHIPTS).
