What are social determinants of health?

Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the non-medical factors of healthcare that account for up to 80 percent of health outcomes. When patients struggle with access to care, they’re less likely to follow treatment plans or show up to important follow-up visits. Some of these social and economic factors include challenges such as: 

  • Transportation
  • Housing and financial instability
  • Food insecurity
  • Social isolation
  • Education
  • Unemployment
  • Access to green space

Not having a holistic view of patients, outside of the standard clinical data, could result in patients being readmitted and turning to more emergency visits than necessary. Additionally, providers might experience poor quality ratings and less reimbursements and payers could see unnecessary rising costs. If you’re looking to solve for social determinants of health and gain a more holistic view of your patients, we’re here to help.
