Social Determinants of Health and Health Equity

download (6)

The Social Determinants of Health workgroup focuses on efforts to deliver equitable and accessible health services as well as how coordinated care may mitigate the impact of social determinants.

Over the past year, the group has spent time discussing screening, coding, and how electronic health records may incorporate population health and social determinants data, and how multiple provider types may collect, access, and understand this data; how clinical integration models may inform social service integration; opportunities in expanded public health partnerships; and, current efforts in this realm across coordinated care and health systems.
