John Schwartz is Chief Revenue Officer at HSBlox and he strongly believes that care coordination is essential for all patients. The challenge is how can healthcare stakeholders improve the delivery of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) to better serve vulnerable people.  Aligning medical and social care needs is a messy issue and there needs to be a stronger recognition of how much the environment determines health of a population.

HSBlox enables SDOH risk-stratification, care coordination and appropriate data sharing through its digital health platform.  It applies AI, machine learning and blockchain technologies to streamline SDOH processes of data exchange, patient consent management and referral optimization.
