95% of U.S. healthcare expenditure go towards medical care
While 95 per cent of U.S. healthcare expenditures go towards medical care, most experts have long agreed that an individual’s health and well-being is influenced by factors beyond medical services. Studies report that Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) – conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and play – have a major impact on an individual’s health.
As care shifts from situational care to value-based care, healthcare organizations are looking for ways to improve members’ health and save costs by addressing needs beyond medical alone.
To achieve this goal, understanding the community of the members and the challenges members face in these communities is critical.
One of the best ways to do so is by studying various publicly available indicators.
