Healthcare providers must look beyond the doctor’s office to complete our health picture. Housing, employment, education, and more shape the way we walk in the world.

When we keep digging into why patients are unhealthy, we can uncover barriers and begin fixing what is causing poor health. A model structured around patient-centered care focuses on building mutually beneficial healthcare relationships between the family, patient, and medical providers. But, every relationship takes time to grow. When we slow down care and ask the right questions, we can reveal the root causes of health.
Longer appointment times and guided health coaching allows clinicians to dig into the social determinants of health to help patients understand their complete health picture.
