We collaborated with Catholic Charities of Steuben / Livingston to improve healthcare access to vulnerable people in Steuben and Livingston. The agency expanded its outreach and used 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 provided technical support to ensure the program met its goals. This support included consultation on data and analytics, and a program evaluation report.
Catholic Charities used these screenings to refer individuals to area providers for primary and behavioral health services. The agency also coordinated and supported these individuals in getting needed healthcare and social services.
