New Orleans


Strengthened relationships increase community support

Increased collaboration with providers on identifying and integrating social determinants of health into the clinical setting continued through 2020. Humana further engaged with the New Orleans Health Department, working with community stakeholders to form a Community Health Improvement Plan. All of these partnerships proved essential in 2020 when COVID-19 restrictions caused food insecurity and social isolation to exacerbate among vulnerable residents. Resources were able to be quickly deployed with Humana and partner support.
