RISE Association is All Set for Identifying the Social Determinants of Health

The RISE Association has announced that it is going to join hands with Alexandra Schweitzer to conduct a survey for the identification of social determinants of health. The main objective of this benchmarking survey is to provide an understanding of the factors affecting the success of the new health programs.

This step facilitates health workers in developing programs for the areas where individuals learn, live, play, and work. These programs can more effectively deal with situations such as the increased risk of health-related issues, thus improving the outcomes.

Among the elements affecting an individual’s health, some are socioeconomic factors, environmental factors, and health-related behaviors.

The survey conducted by the RISE association emphasizes how success for health-related programs are evaluated by various community-based organizations and health plans.  Additionally, the survey will also determine the effectiveness and outcomes of these programs. RISE Association will disclose the findings of this survey at its National Summit on Social Determinants of Health from March 15, 2020, to March 17, 2020.

This summit is going to be happening at Omni Nashville Hotel, Nashville, Tennessee. Alexandra Schweitzer is a researcher at the Harvard Kennedy School. She is an expert working for the successful implementation of various new health-related initiatives.
