White Paper: “The Iceberg Cometh: Welcome to Sickville, USA”   

Increasingly, the U.S. healthcare system devotes resources, attention and innovation to managing the care of patients with cancer or chronic illness. However, it vastly underestimates the growth of that population and is poor at identifying individuals who will end up needing such services. The Iceberg Cometh, the first of a four-part white paper series co-authored by Carrot Health’s Kurt Waltenbaugh and 4sight Health’s David Johnson, taps powerful consumer and health data analytics to reveal the enormous crisis American healthcare is speeding toward.

Webinar: “Solving Social Determinants Before They Lead to Claims”

Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) live upstream from the healthcare system. When left unresolved, they can flow into the healthcare system as claims.

Social determinants can be addressed with the right tools. When managing value- or risk-based contracts, solving them can be the biggest lever for generating the triple aim: better outcomes and experiences while lowering costs in vulnerable populations.

Kurt Waltenbaugh, Founder & CEO of Carrot Health, and Jamo Rubin, MD, Founder & CEO of TAVHealth, will describe how to identify high social risk members within your managed population, and then how to leverage your community to help resolve their social determinants.
