Addressing Social Determinants of Health: Ethical Implications

ABSTRACT

According to the CDC, social determinants of health are the conditions where people live, work, play, learn, and worship, and which affect health and health outcomes. Poor health outcomes are often caused by ineffective or absent social determinants. 

Many initiatives are underway to evaluate whether making connections to non-medical services can result in improved health and reduced healthcare spending. The American healthcare system is outcomes driven and has traditionally not reimbursed non-medical services. We must follow and be aware of the Code of Professional Conduct for case manages.

Questions remain unanswered as to how these services would be funded, how will outcomes be evaluated, and what criteria will be used to determine who qualifies for the services.
