Free Executive Web Briefing Courtesy Of WEX Health

November 10, 2020 | 1:00 p.m. Eastern

“Social Determinants of Health” is not a new term among those in the health and human services space; however, an integrated benefits delivery platform addressing health and social programs is new. Government agencies can improve outcomes and contain costs by streamlining and simplifying benefit delivery across the vast breadth of health and human services. Imagine one platform, one login delivering benefits on a single card with multiple purses across transportation, childcare, housing, healthcare, food and cash assistance programs. It’s time to improve health and human services outcomes with a unified, person-centric benefits platform.
