Social Determinants of Health Measurements Project

With funding from the NYS Health Foundation and Care Compass Network, Rural Health Network is conducting a two-year project (2019-2020) to improve the measurement of Social Determinants of Health among rural community-based organizations (CBOs).

Social Determinants include factors such as food access, housing, employment, and transportation. By measuring programs that address these factors, CBOs can communicate their impact on health outcomes to potential funders. Project activities include assessing current measurement designs, testing new return-on-investment calculations, and providing support to small and rural CBOs as they navigate the value-based payment environment.

Look for periodic updates on progress and learnings from this project in the Rural Matters Newsletter and on the New York State Association for Rural Health website. Questions can be directed to Emma Nalin, project coordinator, at
