We are collaborating with Catholic Charities of Steuben / Livingston to improve healthcare access to vulnerable people in Steuben and Livingston. The agency will expand its outreach and use its mobile van to provide telehealth services and social determinants of health screenings.
Social determinants of health are health-related social needs that have an effect on health outcomes. Examples of social determinants of health include housing, food, transportation, utilities, and personal safety.
As part of this collaboration, we are providing technical support to ensure the program meets its goals. This support includes consultation on data and analytics, and a program evaluation report.
Catholic Charities will use these screenings to refer individuals to area providers for primary and behavioral health services. The agency will also coordinate and support these individuals in getting needed healthcare and social services.
