This IDC Perspective highlights noteworthy progress across the products and industry on display at the AHIP Institute and Expo 2021 with regard to social determinants of health (SDOH)/whole-person care and health equity.
"Three years ago, 50% of the vendor and end-user presenters at this year's AHIP Institute and Expo would not have been here. SDOH is incorporated into whole-person data platforms, whole-person care, and disparity — and none of it would have been top of mind then. COVID-19 impetus toward the new awareness of more data and different lenses on health and reimbursement causes the AHIP conference to now be dominated by nontraditional topics as insurance companies continue to strive to be the member's dominant partner in care to navigate the fragmented health ecosystem." — Jeff Rivkin, research director of IDC Health Insights
