We are constructing the science around the Social Determinants of Health, enabling community interventions to improve measurable healthcare outcomes.
Harnessing the Power of Social Determinants of Health: The Idea that Launched a Movement
We are experts in the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), which as a group of health factors, are both complex and simple. As physicians, we know that outcomes do not come from expert clinical advice only. When we harness the outcome power of Social Determinants of Health—and meet the social needs of real life—we can expect to see improved health outcomes.
We are unwavering in our mission to improve health and healthcare for patients and families. We know that the solutions lie in the integration of social and clinical data combined with tangible, patient-centered interventions.
We are Socially Determined.
Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) are “the structural determinants and conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.” They include factors like socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender, education, one’s physical environment, employment, social support, access to healthcare, as well as health literacy.
Upcoming conferences and speaking engagements include:

The Socially Determined research and analytics team explores social determinants data to surface important relationships, metrics and opportunities for impact. Our customized services connect social interventions to needs and measure ROI at patient, community and population levels.
