Taking Action: SDOH Programs Innovate in a New Era

Tackling social determinants of health (SDOH) has been a top-line issue for healthcare leaders, especially during the pandemic, which exposed more disparities across vulnerable populations, including increased social isolation and lack of food and adequate technology, to name just a few. As patients face ongoing social risks, needs, and other repercussions from the pandemic, healthcare organizations are mobilizing in new ways to connect them to healthy food, safe housing, transportation, medication, technology, and more.


In the latest HealthLeaders Industry Focus Section, we had the opportunity to interview Lyn Salsgiver, MBA, vice president of community health equity at Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS), Connecticut, and Meryl Weinberg, chief of staff and strategic partnerships at MetroPlus Health, about the situations their facilities are facing and what they are doing to ensure long-term success.
