Connected Care Series: Social Determinants of Health

Use cases and strategic steps to integrate biopsychosocial IT

social determinants of health

The shift toward value-based care is forcing provider organizations to consider the impact of social determinants of health (SDH) on outcomes. In response to these forces, provider organizations must develop mechanisms to capture, analyze, and integrate these new data sources into clinical workflow. Incorporating SDH data into care management and delivery will determine providers’ effectiveness at managing the health of populations beyond the traditional care encounter.

In this report, we define SDH, outline a vision for connected care, evaluate different approaches to gathering SDH data, and give some initial considerations for how to approach SDH initiatives in your organization using IT.
