Demilto, L., & Nakashian, M. (2016). Using social determinants of health data to improve health care and health: A learning report. M. McKaughan (Ed.). Washington, DC: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Year: 2016


This report aims to provide the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and other health foundations with a perspective on the emerging intersection of social determinants of health (SDOH), health care systems, and social and other services. These fields intersect in how and what data are collected, and in ways the data are used to improve health and well-being and promote a Culture of Health. Thirty-eight people recommended by RWJF staff, and by those interviewed, and also found through research, shared their perspectives on collecting and using SDOH data. Most people interviewed are working on programs to address SDOH. Others are experts in related fields. A Learning Compendium at the end offers additional information and resources, including funders, an annotated list of those interviewed and examples of programs.
