The Importance of Social Determinants of Health

With such a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and health outcomes in the current healthcare environment, it is important to take a step back and look at how social determinants of health affect your patient population. Taking the steps to improve healthcare for all individuals is a top priority and focus for healthcare leaders in our country and we want to make sure your practice is informed.

In this educational webinar, we provide insight on what the social determinants of health are, factors that affect an individual’s health outcomes, initiatives taken to close the gap of socioeconomic differences, and why it is important for all healthcare entities to recognize the correlation of social determinants and health outcomes. While this topic has always been a priority, there has been an increased drive over the years to identify and acknowledge the social determinants of health and enhance healthcare for low socioeconomic individuals. Throughout the presentation, we provide you with the tools you need to prepare your practice to focus on population health and what you can expect in both the short and long-term future when it comes to industry-wide change revolving around the importance of social determinants of health.
