ProMedica and Kumanu Partner to Develop and Launch New Social Determinants of Health Solution for Employers
First-of-kind solution fills major gap in employer well-being strategies by uncovering unmet needs, increasing resource connections, and activating positive changes.
Toledo, Ohio, and Ann Arbor Michigan, July 29, 2020 – ProMedica, a mission-based, not-for-profit integrated health care organization, and Kumanu, a leading purpose-centered well-being technology firm have partnered to launch an innovative well-being solution for employers that addresses critical risk factors often not sufficiently accounted for in most corporate well-being programs: the social determinants of health (SDOH).
Social determinants of health are the social, economic, and environmental factors that impact health risks and outcomes. They include factors such as food insecurity, financial strain, housing, behavioral health, transportation, violence risks, and childcare. While clinical care accounts for only 20 percent of health outcomes, SDOH and behavior taken together influence around 80 percent, according to the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement.
Powered by Kumanu’s PurposeCloud™ platform, this new employer-customizable solution incorporates:
- Advanced analytics and predictive modeling to project population needs and risks
- An easy-to-deploy confidential employee assessment tool
- An app that uses purpose to amplify motivation while connecting people to health and human service resources
- Consultative resources from The ProMedica Social Determinants of Health Institute and Kumanu’s purpose experts to integrate with existing employer well-being programs and incorporate best practices
- Reporting and analytic dashboards that provide an aggregated view of risk, needs, engagement trends, and projected outcomes.
The new SDOH Solution for Employers will be available from both ProMedica and Kumanu. To learn more, sign up here to join CEOs Randy Oostra and Victor Strecher for a Livestream event focused on the new solution and results from pilot efforts.
