A recent study published in JAMA found that only 15.6% of physicians reported screening for all five social determinant of health factors: food insecurity, housing instability, utility needs, transportation needs, and interpersonal violence.
The infrastructure isn’t in place in most communities to address SDoH issues, and neither is the technology for health care providers to quickly, easily and effectively make referrals to community-based organizations. Physicians aren’t screening because they would be flagging problems without a way to address them. However, some social care and health care organizations are working together and because of these community networks, patients are being screened and SDoH issues are being addressed.
During this webinar, Alliance for Better Health will talk about how it is working with health systems and payers in alternative payment arrangements, and providing their providers with SDoH data, allowing them to connect patients with community-based organizations to improve care and reduce costs.

Jacob Reider, MD
Jacob Reider, MD, FAAFP works at the intersection of health and IT to motivate and empower communities to think differently about how they can best promote the health of their members. As chief executive officer at Alliance for Better Health, Jacob focuses on galvanizing the medical community to realize and capture the potential of the evolution from volume-based care to value-based health. A family doctor since the early 1990s, he understands the challenges medical providers face and leverages technology to foster improved communication and data-driven solutions for population health needs.
In addition to practicing family medicine, Jacob is experienced working and teaching in academia, launching multiple successful start-up organizations, collaborating with entrepreneurs and investors and working in the state and federal governments. While deputy national coordinator and chief medical officer of the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology, a staff division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Jacob helped to design and build the nation’s electronic medical records system. He has also consulted with the New York State Department of Health on health IT strategies, where he was first introduced to DSRIP and Alliance. Jacob holds a Doctor of Medicine from Albany Medical College and a Bachelor of Arts in cognitive science from Hampshire College.
Jacob passionately promotes innovation; seeing experimentation and risk-taking as critical to forming new business models that will shift the economics of health. As Alliance continues to foster collaborative environments in which physicians, nurses, care team members and patients are encouraged to be creative, each achievement will be a powerful endorsement, regionally and globally, of the power of innovation.
Kristen Scholl joined Alliance for Better Health over three years ago with one objective – to improve the health of Medicaid members by trying new and innovative programs. A visionary, Kristen remains a firm believer that the work she does is a phenomenal opportunity to make a measurable difference in the health of the community using federal and state funds.
In her current role, success means facilitating the integration of technology and service solutions and guiding collaboration and innovation among health care and social care providers. Sometimes, just bringing the right people together in a room can result in discussion and workflow redesign that fosters meaningful change in the community. Kristen’s focus has been on implementing programs that specifically address social determinants of health including the Healthy Together suite of programs consisting of the Unite Us closed loop community referral system, Circulation web-based transportation platform using the Lyft network and City Health Works, a chronic disease health coaching program.
Prior to joining Alliance in January 2016, Kristen was introduced to Medicaid Redesign from the perspective of a Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO). Most recently, she was the Medicaid Operations Director at MVP Health Care. Kristen has more than 20 years of experience in various roles with MCOs which has provided her with the expertise to contribute to the Alliance goal of improving the health of the community while preparing partners for success in a value-based payment environment.
