States are challenged with the many questions raised when considering social determinants in a Medicaid program, addressing them in practice, and using the data derived from related research to drive Medicaid planning. How do we gather useful information? How do we fund programs to address social determinants of health (SDoH)? This discussion will take a look at how some states are gathering and using SDoH data, the emerging technologies that can assist in addressing social determinants, and the ongoing supports needed to change population health through SDoH factors. Connecting population health with social elements that don’t directly fall under state Medicaid or Department of Health purview is a key factor in transforming health and human service organizations and the way they address the overall needs of their constituents. This discussion offers an innovative combination of technology, services and a switch in paradigm to supportive services instead of reactive services.
