Addressing Social Needs and Social Determinants in the Workforce
How Employers can Lead by Example and Move Upstream Together
A key issue facing the American healthcare system is the impact of social needs, social risks, and social determinants of health (SDoH) on healthcare. Each of these “social” terms brings a slightly different focus to forces that can impact communities and their members.
For employers, understanding these impacts within the context of a population health strategy can foster a broader approach to closing gaps in care and in access to services across employee populations. This new report identifies a process model to enhance employee and community wellbeing.

Even before the pandemic, the US healthcare system was in crisis with poorer outcomes and higher costs than any other developed country. Unrestrained costs; convoluted and misaligned supply chains; and siloed and underperforming interventions all reinforce that this is a “market” that often acts out of self-interest, rather than the needs of purchasers, individuals and society.
In the report of 2021 National Alliance initiatives, events and activities, learn how we are leading constructive and collaborative change that enables higher value in the healthcare marketplace.
