Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) are conditions in the environments where people live, learn, work and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. They include factors like socioeconomic status, education, neighborhood and physical environment, employment, social support networks and access to health care.

SDOH’s are particularly relevant in the context of health equity, as they reveal issues that are seen as critical barriers to overcoming health disparity. In a data-heavy world, SDOHs are an important input.

SDOH was a healthcare industry trend in our 2022 March Healthcare Classic. Explore this year’s interactive bracket to see the most impactful healthcare trends face off.
