Spring Junction: Social Determinants of Health

Spring Junction is a membership-based forum that brings together forward-thinking leaders in healthcare to inspire transformation. Spring Junction members collaborate, engage with each other, follow trends, and continuously learn.

 

Spring Junction SDOH features a library of curated data and articles, case studies, special events, original content, and more - all about social determinants of health. We highlight leading voices, innovative approaches, common challenges, and best practices. In this way, we harness the power of radical collaboration, without requiring members to compromise their strategic advantages.

As awareness grows about the degree of impact social determinants have on health outcomes and costs, the industry is taking note. Yet, socially informed interventions often don’t fit in a typical intervention toolkit for a health insurer or health system. Effective social determinant programming is locally defined, usually with multiple stakeholders, breaks the patterns of healthcare thinking, and involves complex payment and measurements. Combined, these complications make implementation particularly difficult, but also highlights the value of a forum dedicated to this topic.
