Community-based organizations (CBOs) are well positioned and motivated to help people navigate the complex paths into benefits and services. CBOs that seek to address their clients’ complex social needs, including assistance with health care, nutrition, housing, child care, utilities, and job training, often need to separately log onto multiple systems and complete manual processes that require redundant information collection and other inefficiencies.

This panel will explore how CBOs can benefit from access to systems that provide a '360-degree citizen view’ integrating health and SDoH (Social Determinants of Health) data. Panelists will provide various perspectives on data integration efforts as well as their experiences using technology for information and referral for clients as well and eligibility and enrollment processes.

This discussion is aimed at federal, state, and local policy and IT leaders who seek to maximize their knowledge by hearing from community partners to improve program performance, promote integration and how to best leverage clinical and ’non-clinical’ data assets.
