An AI success story in SDOH – closing care gaps: one health system’s journey

Addressing social determinants of health largely depends on data, but key information is often locked up in silos, hindering hospitals and health systems progress. 

Northshore Edward-Elmhurst Health got around this challenge and accelerated its health equity initiatives by unlocking key SDOH data, which uncovered an alarming life expectancy disparity in its regional population. This whitepaper recaps their success, including how a solution from IQVIA enabled emergency department social workers to identify 56% more at-risk patients at the point of care, resulting in more targeted interventions and treatment. 

Learning points:
  • Why it is critical for health systems to have a view of the SDOH most relevant to their patient populations
  • How NLP can unlock patient level insights at scale
  • How artificial intelligence can be deployed successfully in clinical settings
