Social Determinants of Health: Your Questions Answered

We recently sponsored a webinar on Best Practices in Addressing Social Determinants of Health Issues Impacting Highest-Need Populations with AHIP. There were so many great questions from our viewers that we didn’t have time to address during the webinar.  

  • What types of data are you seeing? What insights do you have?
  • What are the priorities of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) needs, such as housing, food, transportation?
  • Describe the importance of patients understanding how to self-advocate and if there is education that is provided around the topic?
  • Any differences in social determinants of health by geography e.g. rural vs urban populations?
  • How do you evaluate the effectiveness of these efforts?

As a continuation of our previous webinar, this webinar will show how to identify the highest-need populations, address disparities and insecurities, and how deploying peer counselors or community health workers from or around the local community will help extend the reach of your clinical staff while helping your populations to lead healthier lives.
