Defining the “Glide Path”: State Medicaid Agencies’ Efforts to Promote Action on Social Determinants

State Health and Value Strategies published findings from a series of interviews with state Medicaid leaders about how to monitor the implementation of “social care.” State Medicaid agencies are increasingly exploring opportunities to incorporate “social care” into strategies for improving health, decreasing healthcare costs, and achieving equity. The findings are derived from a two-part research project conducted by the Social Interventions Research and Evaluation Network at the University of California, San Francisco (SIREN) for SHVS that explored ways to scale and sustain social care across the healthcare sector.
