Social Determinants of Health
What are social determinants of health?
Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in which people live, work, and spend time, which can influence up to 80% of health outcomes for patients. Information about SDOH can be useful in giving providers a view into other factors that influence their patients' health – such as housing, nutrition, transportation, and social support.
