Next Avenue featured the Great Plains Senior Services Collaborative in an article examining how integrating social services into health care improves outcomes and prevents hospital admissions. Next Avenue cites a recent report that found the incorporation of care that tackles issues like housing, food and reliable transportation is critical to improving prevention and treating acute and chronic illness. The Collaborative addresses additional challenges related to social determinants of health that rural seniors face such as access to transportation and health care services, isolation and loneliness, and food security.
