Altruista Releases ‘Snapshot’ of Safety-Net Health Plan Concerns

Altruista Health works closely with industry partners to serve the needs of health plan members. The company recently partnered with the Association of Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) to survey safety-net health plans about their priorities, challenges and needs in serving high-need populations. The results were compiled in a snapshot report that highlights findings on social determinants of health (SDOH), medical complexity and member engagement. Altruista Chief Medical Officer Munish Khaneja, MD, MPH, FACP, notes that the emphasis on SDOH is not surprising. “We constantly hear from plans trying to engage and support members in their most basic needs,” he said. Altruista Health is the exclusive ACAP Strategic Ally in care management applications and serves Medicaid plans in 44 states.
