Rural Health in America
Responding to social determinates of health to improve care for medically-underserved communities.
Rural hospitals are disappearing rapidly. In rural America, more than 100 acute care facilities have closed over the past two and half years. Patients are now being triaged at local clinics, if one exists, then must travel to facilities that may be hours away for their care. That is a barrier to accessing healthcare—and just one of many. How does transportation and other social determinants of health (SDoH) factor into delivering healthcare for medically underserved and otherwise disadvantaged geographic areas?
BioIQ CEO Sean Slovenski will discuss this pressing topics with Donato Trumato, a noted healthcare advocate with a deep commitment to global health and more than 35 years of healthcare experience. Mr. Tramuto is an author, founder of Health eVillages, and the former CEO of Tivity Health, Inc., (Nasdaq: TVTY). He is widely recognized for his commitment to social change and transformational leadership in healthcare innovation that led The New York Times to deem him “a global health activist.”
