4 Critical Questions that Must Be Answered...

The health care industry is buzzing with conversations focused on social determinants of health (SDOH) but there is little certainty about what it actually means and how organizations should build their strategy around it.  Leavitt Partners, has a framework built around four critical questions that must be answered as organizations think about addressing SDOH.  

  1. How can data inform an SDOH intervention?
  2. What role should providers and payers play in addressing social needs?
  3. What capabilities are needed to build and maintain successful SDOH initiatives and partnerships?
  4. Is there a sustainable financing model for social investment? 

Our experts help audiences think through these questions and how to apply them in considering or beginning to develop SDOH strategies.
