Looking for Resources to Help Patients in Need? A 'Yelp for Health'
We empower community members, such as high school students, to understand social determinants of health, map and update local resources on a searchable web-based 'Yelp for Health' platform, and teach clinics how to tailor their care to community needs. Clinics use the platform to find resources for patients with social needs. We call this model 'HealthDetailing 2.0'. Want to learn more or apply the HealthDetailing 2.0 model where you work? Want a 'Yelp for Health' for your community? Sign up today!

Need Funds for a Health Project? Check out BetterCareForAll.org
It can be hard to get important health projects off the ground. We built a crowdfunding platform to help community clinics and nonprofits raise funds for projects that address patients' social needs and improve social determinants of health. Unlike other crowdfunding sites, we reinvest a portion of net proceeds back into successful nonprofits, especially clinic-community partnerships that are improving health where it begins.
An Online WorkPlan for Social Determinants of Health
We know how to redesign healthcare to better care for patients and communities with complex social needs. We distilled that expertise into a simple cloud-based workplan to help clinics and community groups develop and improve interventions that tackle social determinants of health. Want to join our beta?
