According to a March 4 press release, Frodtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Health Network and Advocate Aurora Health members are creating a new Wisconsin Health Equity Collaboration that will focus on alleviating social determinants of health problems in patient care.

As part of the partnership, information and referral service provider Impact will work with healthcare system and IT company NowPow to launch Impact Connect, a digital platform for partner organizations in various industries, including healthcare, food and housing, to share people’s data and better coordinate resources for patients with social determinants of health needs.

Founding health system partners working on the collaboration include Frodtert, Advocate Aurora Health, Children’s Wisconsin, and Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, based in Milwaukee.

Impact Connect will use NowPow’s community referral platform to identify the social determinants of people’s health needs and match them with resources available in the community. The collaboration will connect Milwaukee residents to resources starting this spring.
