Keith Hovan, CEO of southeastern MA community health system Southcoast Health (@SouthcoastHlth), gets down to brass tacks on Harlow On Healthcare, talking about addressing social determinants of health by empowering community health workers to do what it takes; addressing the opioid crisis by greatly reducing reliance on opioids in the ER, in ambulances, and eslewhere in the system; and leveraging healthcare innovation – no matter how far from an urban or academic healthcare setting.
