Socially Determined and DataGen Partner to Bring Social Determinants of Health Insights to Hospitals and Health Systems
Strategic Partnership Extends Socially Determined’s Reach into Healthcare Providers and Expands DataGen’s Analytics to Include Social Risk Intelligence™
Washington, DC – September 26 2021 — Socially Determined, the Social Risk Intelligence™ company for organizations committed to addressing the social determinants of health, today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with DataGen, the healthcare analytics company that 48 state hospital associations, and their members, trust to deliver insights on payment policy changes, value-based programs and market dynamics. Through this partnership, Socially Determined will enrich the insights and analytics DataGen delivers to clients by providing access to social risk data and analytics through Socially Determined's SocialScape platform. Likewise, DataGen’s experience with state hospital associations and the trust it has earned over nearly two decades as an analytics provider will enable Socially Determined to quickly expand its footprint with providers across the nation.
"Hospitals and health systems have shown a growing interest in better understanding the social determinants of health for a number of years. But it’s no longer just an interest – the pandemic has helped providers and others realize that incorporating social risk into their business is a clear need,” said Al Campanella, President of DataGen. “By partnering with Socially Determined and tapping into its unique data and platform, we’re providing a unified and authoritative voice on analytics within the national dialogue to integrate healthcare with social care to achieve better health outcomes.”
The partnership will enable DataGen to license SocialScape on Socially Determined’s behalf and provide services for implementation, training and customer support. Moreover, DataGen will incorporate Social Risk Intelligence data into its custom analytics offerings to healthcare providers and community-based organizations and will collaborate with Socially Determined to enrich data sources that power the SocialScape platform.
SocialScape fuses hundreds of datasets into proprietary algorithms to deliver Social Risk Intelligence allowing organizations to understand how food insecurity, financial strain, transportation barriers, housing instability and health literacy impact health and business outcomes. By understanding the contours and concentrations of social risk, and how and where communities and people are affected, organizations can develop tailored intervention strategies and measure program success in a standardized and repeatable way.
“Hospitals and health systems need the best information possible about social risks to maximize their impact on the people and communities they serve,” said Anthony Beverina, Chief Strategy Officer at Socially Determined. “We built SocialScape with this need in mind and are delighted to partner with DataGen to help these organizations make better use of data and analytics for good. We admire DataGen’s long track record of delivering analytic insights and trust in their ability to onboard Social Risk Intelligence from SocialScape efficiently and to great effect in their customer base.”
