The role of individual social determinants of health (SDOH) in driving avoidable medical costs, especially in the lower income populations, has been established in numerous studies. While there are isolated examples of using SDOH in providing clinical care, current workflows of providers are not equipped to integrate such input into personalized care management and power risk contracts. We showcase an analytical “companion diagnostic” that integrates social determinants and drives towards personalized patient care. This session will show how providers and payers can use existing social determinant data in EHRs and elsewhere to better prioritize patients and identify what care programs will be most effective for each patient or patient population. This interactive session will allow the audience to explore populations from several use cases and drill down into insights from an EHR database of about 500,000 patients across 15 states to uncover relationships between social drivers and health outcomes.
