Increasing recognition has been paid to the role that social, economic and environmental factors play in one’s overall health.  By addressing issues outside of traditional healthcare, often more cost effectively, overall health outcomes will be improved, cost to the system will be lowered and health disparities reduced.  The government and other payers have started to recognize this as a key issue and there will be increasing programs put forth to address this.

Event Recap

On June 19, WCA brought together a panel of regional experts to talk about the Social Determinants of Health. Key takeaways include: only 11% of a person’s health outcomes are driven by medical care. Much of the balance is driven by factors such as economic stability, education, housing conditions, food access, etc. Addressing those factors can significantly drive down total costs to the healthcare system. If a person has social needs, they are 31% more likely to be hospitalized at a higher average cost ($8,082) vs. a person without social needs ($6,071).
