In 2018, social determinants of health (SDOH) received considerable attention in the healthcare industry. Data insights from social determinants of health data play significant factor in achieving the best possible health outcomes and should be used to tailor care management and planning. This research shows the value and patient benefits of addressing these non-clinical health influencers.
Health plans and providers can take a variety of steps to use this data to improve their care management strategies and better serve their patients. Leveraging social determinants of health insights provides a personalized approach to care managers to intervene before complications develop or worsen, and the risk scores ensure that organizational resources are deployed where they are needed most. As the industry continues the shift toward value-based care, use of social determinants of health data enables tailored, prioritized outreach efforts that address not just the medical condition but the whole person.
