ROI Calculator for Partnerships to Address the Social Determinants of Health

The calculator is designed to assist community-based organizations and their medical partners in creating mutually advantageous financial arrangements for funding the delivery of social services to high-need, high-cost (HNHC) populations. These populations, which account for a disproportionately large share of health care expenditures, often have clinically complex conditions, cognitive or physical limitations, and/or behavioral health problems. These complex care populations are likely to benefit most from a holistic model of care that addresses the social determinants of health.
