Communities for Health

Today’s workers are seeking out a new and improved employee value proposition that includes a focus on all aspects of health and well-being. As the boundaries between work and life continue to blur, employees increasingly look to employers to foster a culture of health; to optimize the built environment; and to provide wellness-enhancing amenities, programs and policies. And so employers are taking holistic approaches to workplace wellness, taking all aspects of employees’ health and well-being into consideration.

Population Health Management: A New Business Model for a Healthier Workforce

Addressing the Social Determinants of Health to Improve Population Health

Conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. These conditions are known as social determinants of health (SDOH). We know that poverty limits access to healthy foods and safe neighborhoods and that more education is a predictor of better health. We also know that differences in health are striking in communities with poor SDOH such as unstable housing, low income, unsafe neighborhoods, or substandard education. By applying what we know about SDOH, we can not only improve individual and population health but also advance health equity.
