An ad hoc committee will plan and convene a one-day public workshop that will explore 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 will feature invited presentations and discussion that will explore 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?
The planning committee will plan and organize the workshop, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussion at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
