  • November 14, 2017
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Online

Did you know that a member’s zip code is a stronger predictor of a person’s health than their genetic code?

The social determinants of health (SDH) are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life.

Learn about a new approach to your plan’s population health strategy with insights into data, case studies, and best practices.


  1. Take a look at a premise for understanding your total population and your Medicaid enrollees in particular
  2. Consider critical factors contributing to the engagement dilemma facing health plans
  3. Discuss an approach being implemented by forward-thinking and value-driven health plans
