Announcing Your SDoH Handbook:  Understanding SDoH, Health Equity and Its Importance in Your Population Health Strategy

Population health analytics is always evolving, and organizations know that in order to succeed, they need to adopt clinically relevant and actionable tools. And with the addition of new policies and value-based care contracts and strategies, the need to go beyond clinical care and medical history when addressing the patient population is more important than ever before. Understanding social determinants of health (SDoH) is essential for crafting an intelligent and accurate population health strategy, and it plays a pivotal role in unlocking opportunities for better patient care and cost savings.

As a result, we are thrilled to introduce a comprehensive resource to help you measure and address SDoH and health equity: The Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) Handbook.

Inside, you will gain valuable insights into:

  • Social Determinants of Health: Learn why SDoH are critical for understanding a population’s overall health, and how it can help your organization lower costs and improve patient care.
  • Social Need Markers: Discover how to identify and capture health needs at the individual patient level, and how providers and health plans can use this to implement appropriate interventions.
  • ACG GeoHealth: Explore this proprietary ACG feature, which provides valuable geo-targeted measurements, helping you assess risks and health challenges faced by populations due to their geographical location.
  • Health Equity: Learn about the importance of health equity and how to measure health disparities to create an equitable population health strategy.

We are very excited to announce the release of this brand-new resource. Click here to download your copy of the SDoH Handbook today!
