This first topic will examine the impact of non-medical drivers of health-often called “social determinants of health”, on patients and the health system. It has become increasingly clear that efforts to improve quality, lower costs, and enhance patient satisfaction cannot succeed without addressing socio-economic status and non-medical drivers of health such as housing, transportation, and nutrition. These sessions will bring together multi-stakeholder perspectives to examine current policies and practices on social determinants of health and accelerate solutions to improve health outcomes in the U.S.
