Striving For Health Equity with Kamala Green of NGS

As of January 1, 2024, CMS implemented new policies for addressing health-related social needs (HRSN) to proactively treat and better understand the needs of our country’s most underserved and chronically ill populations. These policies will support physicians that help patients identify and connect with the appropriate clinical and community resources to address unmet HRSN that may influence a patient’s treatment.

Today we speak with Kamala Green, social drivers of health program manager at National Government Services, and we discuss as social, economic, and physical factors affecting patient health evolve and diversify, it’s important that federal health agencies continue to prioritize health equity practices and initiatives to provide the highest quality of care possible for every citizen.
