Social determinants play a significant role in one’s health and well-being, according to a new infographic by AcademyHealth.

The infographic examines what communities must do to improve health and the elements needed to encourage collaboration and support financing.

Although nearly three-fourths of health outcomes are determined by social determinants, few clinicians can ably identify those patients facing challenges related to social and environmental conditions or other experiences that directly impact health and health status.
