CME Course Description:
Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in which people are born, live, work, and age that impact health. Unfortunately, many factors outside of the provider’s office play a big role in the health and wellness of patients. This session will focus on a patient story as we identify the social determinants of health that are impacting our patient, discuss the team-based approach to maximize services and care to address the social determinants of health, and conclude with how implementing a value-based care model supports providers in assessing the whole patient to promote positive outcomes.
