On April 26, 2019, the National Academies' Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice hosted a one-day workshop titled Investing in Interventions that Address Non-Medical Health–Related Social Needs. This public workshop explored the potential impact of addressing non-medical health-related social needs on improving population health and reducing health care spending in a value-driven health care delivery system. The workshop featured invited presentations and discussion that explored the following questions:
- What are effective practices to address non-medical health-related social needs?
- What is the evidence base to support the use of these practices?
- What next steps or actions should be considered to further the dissemination and uptake of best practices?
- Are there methodologies for assessing the Return of Investment (ROI) for these practices?
- What are the gaps in the evidence base and related research?
A proceedings of the presentations and discussion at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines and release in the coming months.
