Social Determinants of Health
Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. They include socioeconomic status, education, the physical environment, employment, and social support networks, as well as access to health care. Healthcare providers are increasingly responsible for reaching population health goals while reducing costs and need strategies to identify upstream socioeconomic drivers of poor outcomes and higher costs. Some effective strategies include:
Social Determinants of Health, Healthy People 2020
Addressing the Social Determinants of Health Within the Patient Centered Medical Home: Lessons from Pediatrics, Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative
Addressing Patients’ Social Needs: An Emerging Business Case for Provider Investment
