Session 6: Making the Business Case for Investing in Addressing SDOH

This session will discuss the type and level of investments ACOs need to make to establish capacity to address different types of SDOH and how to make the case for these investments to their executive teams. It will discuss methods for tracking and reporting program outcomes (including financial outcomes), evidence from the research literature about potential cost offsets, methods for assessing return on investment (introducing resources like the Commonwealth Fund’s ROI Calculator to Address SDOH), and common metrics to consider by need area.
