The Social Determinants of Health Handbook

Population health analytics is well known to provide critical insight for measuring care and identifying needs in member populations. With new policies and value-based care strategies, organizations now need to extend the analysis beyond clinical care and medical history into social, geographical, environmental and economic factors.

Although necessary to determine a population’s overall health and well-being, these social determinants of health (SDoH) have presented many challenges: how to get to the data, how to use these data points and how to apply these insights to strategy. In this handbook, you’ll discover actionable ideas and tactics to solve these challenges using the Johns Hopkins ACG® System.
