Social Determinants of Health Track
Industry-Community Partnerships • Data Analytics • ROI and Outcomes Measurement
The Inaugural Social Determinants of Health Track at the World Health Care Congress convenes professionals from payer, provider, community, and policy organizations to discuss how to partner to address the “non-medical” factors that impact an individual’s health. Mitigating socioeconomic factors – housing, unemployment, mental health issues, substance abuse, etc. – demands a holistic view of a member or patient, and the purposeful design and coordination of services that wrap around them. Faculty and attendees discuss the business case for investing in social determinants. Join us to explore cross-sector initiatives to break down socioeconomic barriers and measure the impact on outcomes, health care cost including Medicaid spend, payer quality measures, ER use, readmissions, and more.
Bottom-Line Impacts: Make the Business Case for Investing in Social Determinants of Health
- Discuss the role of payers and providers in addressing non-medical needs in a risk-based, value-based environment
- Demonstrate the ROI and VOI for organizations with distinct books of business
- Critical differences in making the business case for commercial vs. Medicaid populations
- Discuss data needs and collaborative models
- Gain buy-in and justify money spent
- Turn the needs pyramid and invest in prevention measures specific to social determinants
- Make SDoH part of the corporate culture vs. a service line for vulnerable populations
- Connect the dots between disparities, social determinants, and health improvement with each hire

The World Congress was an amazing collection of thought leaders and front line leaders in health care. All were very generous and open with their opinions and insight and I highly recommend this conference.
A great collection of thought leaders and active innovators in the health care industry coming together to exchange ideas - not always agree but learn and develop for the betterment of patient care and management.
Amazing knowledge from presenters. Great passion. Very much gave the feelings of hope even when addressing the realities of our current system.
