Public agencies are starting to scratch the surface on how to improve outcomes and maintain overall health by addressing the broader social needs of individuals. Collectively, these are often called social determinants of health (SDOH), and they include basic needs such as access to housing, utilities, transportation, education, food, employment, and more. As states increasingly integrate programs, systems, and the supporting data, they are making strides in improving community health and outcomes by viewing the broader needs of individuals through the lens of social determinants.

This panel discussion session will feature state agency professionals who are applying social determinants in various ways. We will discuss their approach, why they’re doing it, and how they’re proceeding, as well as the hurdles, and the efforts to overcome them. We will focus on the integration of data and use of analytics, and how these leaders are implementing a “culture of analytics” to determine the effectiveness of services they provide and to improve the health of their citizens.
