Many Americans face challenges meeting social needs, with factors like food insecurity, housing stability, lack of education, employment, and social support networks all acting as barriers to good health outcomes. These social drivers of health (SDOH) create obstacles for emotional and physical well-being, as people who struggle with meeting their basic needs face greater likelihood for chronic health issues and are less able to devote resources and effort to positive behavioral changes. This session will explore the impact SDOH can have on health outcomes of individuals and the communities in which they live and work. Speakers will explore ways that health plans, employers and other organizations can address SDOH and partner to maximize impact. This session will also highlight the experience of a community and population health-focused health insurance provider and care delivery system committed to identifying and addressing patients’ needs and working with employers to help them think about SDOH issues. Join us to learn some of the steps that employers and health insurance providers can take to address SDOH by leveraging resources through impact investing in the community, improving screening practices, and building partnerships with social support services to increase coverage and reduce gaps.
