Socioeconomic factors such as education, employment, income, and community have been shown to impact 40% of an individual’s health. This is in heavy contrast to other factors including clinical care (20%), lifestyle factors (30%), and physical environment (10%), demonstrating the criticality of Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). To this end, a collective group of community organizations, universities, non-profits, government, and philanthropies are working together to improve the healthcare of all Hoosiers. There are numerous Indiana-based initiatives and successes related to SDOH, and several were highlighted on April 28-30 as the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Monon Collaborative and the Regenstrief Institute co-sponsored “SDOH Data Workshop: Charting a Path for Innovation and Impact in Indiana.” The goal of the conversations and presentations was to deepen partnerships, increase coordination, and drive action around SDOH.
