Social Determinants of Health (United States)

Discover where community-level social disparities and vulnerabilities align with chronic disease prevalence to drive therapeutic access and health equity programs.

The goal of this plug-and-play solution is to discover where community-level social disparities and vulnerabilities align with chronic disease prevalence to drive therapeutic access and health equity programs. . More details on the specifics of the solution can be found on the knowledge base. This Solution is only available on installed instances.

Business Overview

Social determinants of health (SDoH) are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health and quality-of life-risks and outcomes. Research has shown that SDoH can account for up to 90% of health outcomes, whereas medical care accounts for only 10%-15%.  Understanding the social factors associated with chronic disease prevalence not only aligns with social responsibility programs but also can deliver ROI with improved patient outcomes by: 

  • Identifying resources, therapeutics, interventions for populations incorporating both social and disease risk vulnerabilities
  • Developing responsible patient-centric risk-adjusted payment or care models to ensure health equity
  • Impacting operational/spending/quality metrics for both precision preventative care and therapeutic access equity

Hospitals, public and private health services systems, health insurers, and government agencies, as well as pharmaceutical and medical device companies are all increasingly tasked to leverage population/community health insights of social vulnerabilities tied to disease prevalence to inform business practices to address health/disease and therapeutic access disparities. With this solution, healthcare and life science professionals accelerate the discovery of how SDoH disparities affect at-risk populations, allowing refined market access strategies for drug manufacturers, new coverage policies from payers and improved facility outreach and care programs from health services.

Highlights

  • Collect and collate data via API from US Census on community social factor conditions and CDC chronic disease prevalence and risk behaviors surveys
  • Dynamically explore complex data patterns of social determinants of health from an interactive health equity web application
  • Identify and visualize patterns in community-level social factor trends tied to chronic disease with Dataiku’s descriptive analytics and charts and unsupervised ML
  • Model chronic disease prevalences based on social factors to create explainable impacts of community social vulnerabilities on chronic disease condition predictions
