Health-Related Social Needs and Social Determinants of Health

Social determinants of health (SDOH) and their individual-level health-related social needs (HRSN) are increasingly recognized as important components of health, health care, and health outcomes. In this work we use a variety of state and nation-wide data sources to evaluate the use and utility of clinically-coded social determinants of health and health-related social needs.
