In an effort to better understand the link between social needs and individual health and well-being, more data is needed across and within organizations caring for people in the community.
The SDoH use case is a first step in building a knowledge infrastructure that streamlines the process of sharing needed and permissible information across communities and throughout the State of Michigan. The use case allows organizations to send the data specific to SDOH information through the statewide health information network. Data submitted through this use case will also be available to care team members and participating organizations as appropriate to support care coordination and population health.
The following document(s) are available for this scenario:
