Johns Hopkins Team Outlines Ways to Integrate SDOH Data

Mon, 8 Jul 2019

A team from the Johns Hopkins Center for Population Health Information Technology has published a new paper in the Journal of Population Health Management called “Integrating Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health into Population Health Analytics: A Conceptual Framework and Suggested Road Map”.

Citing “growing recognition that social and behavioral risk factors impact population health outcomes,” the article reports on a study that “reviews existing literature and proposes a conceptual framework for the integration of social and behavioral data into population health analytics platforms.” It describes several use cases for integrated platforms: at the patient, health system and community levels. It also aligns the use cases with the types of prevention identified by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and “explores available and potential future sources of social and behavioral domains data.”
