Most of wellness happens outside the hospital
Recent research suggests that 70% of health outcomes are attributed to health-related behaviors, socioeconomic factors, and environmental factors, broadly referred to as social determinants of health. One study found that Social Determinants of Health contributed to more than 50% of hospital readmissions.
Moreover, Pieces’ own analysis of patient health outcomes demonstrates that the presence of SDoH negatively impacts hospital outcomes, such as length of stay and readmission rates. By addressing patients’ Social Determinants of Health, Pieces aids the hospitals in combating the high costs and other issues associated with hospital over-utilization and excess lengths of stay.
