Social determinants of health also play a key role in helping providers understand the complete health of their patient populations, especially those covered by Medicaid, and can help them proactively address societal or economic factors that will negatively impact health. But this data is notoriously difficult to find, store, and utilize in the context of the US healthcare data environment.
