Spring Conference: Social Determinants of Health: Once A Consideration, Now A Planning Imperative
May 10 @ 8:15 am - 2:30 pm
Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) play an influential role in care delivery and patient care outcomes. With the increased attention on value based care and population health, it becomes increasingly important to understand how to incorporate SDoH into the strategic planning process.
Attend the NESHS spring conference to explore the latest relevant SDoH data, learn where you can access information and the financial considerations that need to be evaluated, and hear how your peers and other hospitals are using social information to better inform their strategic plans.
