A person’s social, economic and environmental context matters for health. Health-related social needs (HRSN) — like poor housing conditions, energy insecurity, food insecurity, and interpersonal violence — can derail their care plan or worsen their health status. HRSN drive avoidable care utilization and related system costs, and perpetuate harmful health disparities. Effective organizational responses to people’s HRSN are critical to achieving the Quadruple Aim and furthering health equity.
