A healthcare startup is leveraging growing awareness of social determinants of health to enable healthcare providers to better connect their patients with community resources. Chicago-based NowPow has developed a platform to screen patients for issues related to social determinants of health, connect them with local resources to address those issues and track those connections.
The company recently forged a partnership with New York-based Northwell Health to offer NowPow’s services to 1,200 Medicaid patients who belong to the health network’s Health Home care-coordination program. Health Home is designed to help patients with significant behavioral health needs.
