Doctors rely on clinical data to diagnose health problems and determine the best course for treatment. But are they seeing the whole picture? Studies show that medical determinants are only accountable for 20% of healthcare outcomes. Social determinants of health, however, can account for as much as 50%.¹ When used to augment clinical data, they provide a more holistic view of patients.
