Five Actionable Insights for Successful SDOH Initiatives

There is tremendous momentum and a keen focus among PQA member organizations on addressing social determinants and social drivers of health (SDOH). SDOH impacts every aspect of care, including medication use, and the impact of unmet health-related social needs on patient access and use of care, outcomes, total cost of care, well-being and satisfaction is apparent and a priority to payers and providers.

PQA is proud to release the third edition of the PQA Social Determinants of Health Resource Guide. The guide profiles 40 SDOH services, including eight new services and updates to 10 initiatives from the previous two editions. It serves as a resource to promote best practices by amplifying real-world SDOH services that are promising for improving the quality and safety of medication use.

In this edition of the guide, we identify five actionable insights for successful SDOH initiatives that are consistent across various SDOH programs and services:

  • Collaborative Community Partnerships
  • Training for Healthcare and Non-Healthcare Professionals
  • Targeted Screening and Assessment
  • Data-Driven Insights
  • Cultural Competency and Sensitivity

These five actionable insights reflect the power of innovation, adaptability and dedication to improving the quality of medication use by addressing SDOH barriers.  Read more about these insights in PQA CEO Micah Cost’s new article in Managed Healthcare Executive.
