"The health of a healthcare organization is inextricably linked now to the health of a community and the patients surrounding it. " – Nazleen Bharmal, M.D., Ph.D.

Even before the effects of COVID-19 ravaged the nation, care providers and social service organizations were putting increased effort into addressing people's most basic needs including healthcare, food, shelter, childcare, counseling, transportation, and education. This was due, in part, to increased awareness of the reality that community conditions and social needs largely influence health outcomes.

Technology company Unite Us has created a social care platform that is being utilized by payers and providers across the United States. The company helps communities craft a unified system connecting individuals to quality services, tracking outcomes delivered across an accountable network, and ensuring equity so all communities can thrive. In Northeast Ohio, The MetroHealth System and the Cleveland Clinic have joined with Unite Us to create the Unite Ohio network.

Join us for a conversation highlighting the partnership behind the launch of the Unite Ohio network, and examining how multi-stakeholder efforts to address social determinants of health are developing both locally and nationally.

The livestream will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.

Production and distribution of City Club forums in partnership with ideastream is generously provided by PNC and the United Black Fund.
