Measuring Social Determinants of Health among Low-Income Populations: Early Insights from State Initiatives

This webinar, made by possible by The Commonwealth Fund, will explore emerging state-level approaches to measuring Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) among beneficiaries of publicly financed care. It will address: (1) the rationale for collecting SDOH data; (2) various approaches for using SDOH information; and (3) challenges and key considerations for states interested in advancing SDOH measurement efforts. The webinar will feature promising initiatives in two states, Massachusetts and Oregon, and highlight takeaways from a soon-to-be-published CHCS environmental scan that examines existing SDOH data collection efforts by Medicaid and other public agencies.
