Frodtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network and Advocate Aurora Health are founding members of a new health equity collaboration in Wisconsin focused on alleviating social determinants of health challenges in patient care, according to a March 4 news release. 

Under the partnership, information and referral services provider Impact will work with the health systems and IT company NowPow to launch Impact Connect, a digital platform for partner organizations across various industries, including healthcare, food and housing, to share people's data and better coordinate resources for patients with social determinants of health needs. 

The founding health system partners working on the collaborative include Frodtert, Advocate Aurora Health, Children's Wisconsin and Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, all based in Milwaukee.  

Impact Connect will use NowPow's community referral platform to pinpoint individuals' social determinants of health needs and match them with resources available in the community. The collaboration will start connecting Milwaukee residents to resources this spring.
