The Impact of SDoH on Health Plans

Impact of SDoH on Health Plans

Legacy Challenges and Innovative Solutions

This resource examines the effect of unaddressed social needs on health plans, the challenges associated with implementing interventions, and how health plans can develop proactive strategies to overcome those challenges.

Research shows that the social determinants of health (SDoH) can have significant negative effects on overall health outcomes and health plans have begun to take action. Despite best efforts, costs associated with care delivery continue to climb, while member health outcomes continue to remain stagnant or deteriorate. How can health plans get ahead of the curve and develop proactive strategies to address SDoH before members become high-cost? This white paper will explore strategic solutions to some of those challenges. 

Highlights from this paper include:

  • How aggregation of diverse data sets can help health plans identify members experiencing SDoH 

  • How the transition from fee-for-service to value-based care can help shift the focus on quality rather than quantity and address SDoH at the onset of a member’s health journey

  • How interoperable technologies can help facilitate collaborative workflows and technology for improved information sharing and care coordination with nonclinical partners

  • And more!
