Serving the Safety Net: Two New California Health Care Foundation Reports
California Health Care Foundation (CHCF), an mPulse Mobile investor and partner, worked together with FSG to research what safety net providers and plans are looking for from the private sector to help address social determinants of health. mPulse Mobile was asked to contribute to this research as a private sector company that creates innovative mobile solutions specifically designed to address social determinants of health. In addition to companies like mPulse Mobile, CHCF and FSG spoke with many leaders at safety net providers and plans.
The results of this research appear in a new CHCF series called Primed. The first two reports in the Primed series were written from the safety net research of which mPulse Mobile contributed. Medicaid Pilots Open Door for Innovation in California provides an overview of the new policy incentives and trends driving California’s payers and providers to innovate in delivering health care.
