In this episode, hosts Payal Nanavati and Joe Records talk to Janet Walker and Mercy Care’s CEO, Lorry Bottrill about the ways in which the government and health plans are addressing the social determinants of health (SDOH), which are the conditions in which people are born, live, learn, work, play and age and they affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes.
Lorry has been a leader in Arizona’s health care community for more than 25 years. In this episode, she shares recent examples of Mercy Care’s efforts to address SDOH through collaboration with the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS or “ACCESS”), Arizona’s Medicaid agency.
