Social needs compound clinical acuity and traditional members of the care team aren’t always equipped to address them. Evidence suggests that community health workers, non-clinical non-licensed workers sourced from the community, are. They help address patients’ social needs and provide chronic condition self-management support.
Many population health leaders experience first-hand that it can be tough to make the case for investing in a community health worker program. The financial return of non-clinical interventions is often unclear. Those trying to make the case lack the ability to estimate cost savings over time.
That’s why we created the Community Health Worker Program ROI Calculator. This tool will help you quantify the expected return of a community health worker program.
