The aim of the federal government in healthcare

The federal government has just proclaimed a $157M project to be of help to the hospitals and to doctors associated with the Medicare as well as Medicaid patients who are in need of social services that oftentimes encounter a bigger influence on the health more than the medical interferences. The public health experts were famous for years to the point that even amidst medical care they can be easily available. The patients are usually restricted in their capacity to get good or be able to keep their health if they lack steady housing and even access to healthy and nutritious foods or the capacity to get to and from the medical schedules.

The aim of the project which they call the Accountable Health Communities is to look for ways to determine the patients regardless if it concerns their non-medical requirements and then link them to the available services in the communities. The social services to be connected may include those who are associated with food, safety and even housing. The project will sustain the needs for funds of more than forty four different experiments for 5 years. The applications are being recognized by the Centers for the Medicare along with Medicaid Services and they even have an announcement about the winning proposals which are anticipated this year.

The medical and the social services to reach the poor

The story of KHN also went on to NPR; it can be published again at no cost at all. The aim of the mixture of medical and social services is not just to be of help to the patients in need, but to also know if the system of knowing and tackling the social needs that are linked to health can be lessened in terms of the price of the health care. Most of the community service organizations can be of help to the patients with the health related social needs according to the doctor of the CMS during a conference with the reports, however a lot of clinics and hospitals are associated with these establishments.

There are small scale samples of medical and social needs under one roof around the country that are actually showing positive outcomes. For instance, in Minnesota, it serves as a low income residents who are qualified for the Medicaid, it has lessened the hospital along with the emergency room goes among the caseload. The cultural gap is a part of the issue and it is not between the patients and those who provides, but in between health care experts and social service agencies.  The medical and the social providers are not cast-off when it comes to working with one another or in terms of collaborating. More so, the administration involved, especially in programs that are connected with those suffering from poverty can actually make the collaboration hard if not unbearable
