Social Determinants of Health Investments

About This Report
Providers’ and health insurers’ SDOH investments are growing alongside healthcare’s shift to value-based care. Measuring the impact of this work is challenging but will be necessary to improve health outcomes and lower medical spending.

Executive Summary

It’s now widely recognized that an individual’s societal, economic, and environmental conditions—known as social determinants of health (SDOH)—are the greatest influence on health outcomes. Long overdue, health systems and insurers are investing in interventions that help tackle consumers’ social needs. Now they must figure out how to measure the impact of these programs and which technology platforms will maximize their investments.


  1. What’s driving providers and insurers to grow their SDOH investments?
  2. How can healthcare organizations measure the impact of their investments?
  3. How can providers and insurers strengthen their SDOH programs with technology?

WHAT’S IN THIS REPORT? Healthcare organizations are ramping up their SDOH investments. We explore drivers for this growth, the avenues through which money is flowing, and how providers and payers can enhance their SDOH programs.

KEY STAT: Nearly 8 in 10 (77%) physicians believe that many or all of their patients are affected by at least one SDOH factor.
