9Technology company Unite Us is partnering with several major payers and providers to expand access to its social determinants of health platform in Louisiana and West Virginia. Unite Us is a technology company that builds coordinated care networks of health and social service providers. With Unite Us, providers across sectors can send and receive secure referrals, track every person’s total health journey, and report on tangible outcomes across a full range of services in a centralized, cohesive, and collaborative ecosystem.
In Louisiana and West Virginia, Unite Us has teamed up with Aetna to launch a social determinants of health initiative through CVS Pharmacy’s HealthTag program. The HealthTag program allows pharmacists to deliver personalized messages to people when they come to pick up their prescriptions. The new social determinants initiative will enable pharmacists to identify people who may benefit from social services support and connect them to the resources they need via the Unite Us platform.
Unite Us has also partnered with health plans in Louisiana as well as with Ochsner Health in New Orleans to provide expanded access to its platform. Care managers at health plans Louisiana Healthcare Connections and Aetna Better Health of Louisiana as well as insurer Humana are now using the Unite Us platform to connect Medicaid and Dual-eligible Special Needs Plan members with social services.
