The Social Determinants of Health: Case Management's Next Frontier

Available May 2019

As insurers and health organizations move toward value-based care models that incorporate population and community health, social determinants of health (SDoH) are becoming a point of focus in clinical practice. While the application of SDoHs is fairly new, the external social and economic conditions that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes—such as where people are born, grow, work, and live—are not.

The Social Determinants of Health: Case Management’s Next Frontier is designed to help case managers develop strategies to manage and intervene with the populations predisposed to the risks associated with SDoHs. Not only does this new resource provide practical understanding and theory-based teaching around SDoHs, it also offers coding, assessment, and reimbursement tools for professionals in a clinical setting.

This book combines background information and practical application into one source. It fills the gap between determining what the SDoHs are and applying them to the daily work experience, providing practical tools to assist case managers with reporting ICD-10 Z codes and performing proactive assessments. The book will help readers:

  • Develop strategies to incorporate SDoHs into clinical practice
  • Understand the documentation and coding requirements for SDoHs
  • Engage, assess, and intervene with SDoHs across varied populations
  • Review examples of successful programs and practice with topic-specific case scenarios
