Identifying Successful Community Health Programs to Address SDOH

The Aetna Foundation and the National Quality Forum will work to identify successful community care health programs that address the SDOH.

The social determinants of health (SDOH) may be commonly accepted as key to successful value-based care strategies, but the road to addressing those factors is less clear. With efforts to build community health programs in their nascency, healthcare organizations are left in the dark on which models are most effective.

But a new partnership between the Aetna Foundation and the National Quality Forum (NQF) aims to close that knowledge gap. By aggregating examples of successful social programming, the two healthcare leaders plan to build a guidebook of sorts for other organizations looking to begin the same types of projects.
