Challenge Statement

CAN YOU DEVELOP A DIGITAL SOLUTION TO HELP PROVIDERS AND/OR PATIENTS CONNECT TO SERVICES Related to SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH?

 

Social determinants of health (SDoH) such as education, employment, transportation, and community and social norms, can have critical impacts on well being. However, these factors are often overlooked and excluded in established health care frameworks. Technology has the potential to improve how we address ongoing care delivery by utilizing SDoH information to provide targeted, personalized, and comprehensive care that accounts for the drivers of health in communities.
