Social Determinants of Health, Social Risks, and Social Needs

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 nationwide data sources to evaluate the use and utility of clinically documented social risks and social needs.
