  "In one recent analysis, we observed the use of social determinants of health alone to predict readmission risk as being equally as accurate as using clinical data alone for predicting this risk. The observation itself wasn’t incredibly surprising considering the vast medical literature that supports the idea that many influences for readmission occur outside of a hospital. The surprise came from the relative ease with which the socioeconomic data was used and the opportunity these initial results hold for using this valuable insight for the care of patients."
 - Kathy Mosbaugh, MPH, Vice President, Healthcare Analytics, LexisNexis Risk Solutions.
  Two-thirds of providers offer consumer self-service tools, and 44% provide financial assistance programs for patients enrolled in high deductible health plans; however, only 19% of providers offer patient education programs on cost of care, and 17% have no plans to do so."
