Sociants was developed as a platform for matching social needs and community support. The platform serves to identify social determinants of health, as well as to offer recovery after an extreme climate or disaster event. Sociants is the best way for your organization to understand the value of human well-being coordination, and addressing social needs. Our objective is to improve the well-being and health of every single person inside a community.
Social determinants are health-related, cultural, political and economic forces that help explain the relationship between health and necessities. Some common social determinants are diet, housing, lack of utilities, interpersonal violence, clothing/footwear, transportation, and others. By recognizing the impact of social determinants, stakeholders will have a complete understanding of a population's health and be able to effectively communicate the health-related conditions and behaviors to improve health outcomes.
Extreme climate and disaster events expose a community’s support system, or lack thereof, and exacerbate people's feeble circumstances. Natural disasters cause the destruction of property, loss of financial resources, and personal injury or even death. The impact of these disasters on individuals can often be felt physically, mentally and emotionally. And the loss of resources, security, and access to a shelter can even lead to massive population migrations in lesser-developed countries.
Our team is blended closely in the communities we serve. A number of us come from social worker backgrounds; others dedicated their early careers to healthcare and social services. Some of us have developed software technologies that serve a human good purpose, such as social crowd-funding platforms. With a healthy mix of project management, nonprofit, and technical expertise, you get a wealth of knowledge to guide you through the implementation experience and beyond.
The development of Sociants was accelerated after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico and the gaps in relief were exposed.
Sociants is here to bridge these gaps and even prevent them.
At Sociants.com we employ ethical and transparent processes to collect and handle all the data and information gathered in our platform. We are committed to empowering individuals by giving them the tools and resources to fulfill all their needs. Above all, we believe in teamwork, and the collaboration of efforts to achieve one common goal: a resilient society.
We incorporate all laws into the platform with permission-based access for ultimate compliance. Sociant's in-house legal team assembles and manages the legal structures and agreements that ensure our platform remains compliant with all state and federal information-sharing laws.
