The communities in which we live have a tremendous impact on our health. Social drivers of health (SDoH), factors such as availability of affordable housing and healthy foods, or educational or employment opportunities, influence as much as 50 percent of the factors that contribute to health outcomes. The effective use of data, alongside a strong workforce and sustainable financing, is a critical component to addressing individual social needs and SDoH. When unlocked, shared, and used effectively, SDoH and social needs data become powerful tools with the potential to aid efforts to improve individual health outcomes, implement population health initiatives, and reduce health inequities through upstream interventions that improve the condition of the communities in which individuals live.
Addressing Social Drivers of Health Through Data Innovation and Collaboration explores how health care and community organizations can work together to improve health outcomes and individual wellbeing through data sharing. This conversation is especially timely with recent policy changes related to the collection and use of SDoH and social needs data presenting new opportunities to leverage data to improve the health of communities.
