Data-Driven Approach to Social Determinants of Health Analysis

About this project

Amid the evolving landscape of healthcare, understanding and integrating Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) into patient care is crucial. To meet this challenge for accountable care organizations, our team developed an innovative system leveraging claims data to refine SDOH analysis.

Utilizing a third-party predictive modeling system, our solution infused SDOH factors into comprehensive risk assessment for patients. Beyond mere assessment, it transformed SDOH data into actionable insights, empowering providers, care managers, and nursing staff to devise and deploy proactive, informed care strategies.

CHWE reached out to the Sobah team for this project after failing to get required delivery from 3 different partners in the past.

This problem involves data sources from over 50,000 different sources, where most of the data is unstructured.

Additionally, the user experience of the portal required encouraging citizens to be involved in their politics – a challenge that has eluded younger generations over the last few decades. Most importantly, the initiative is non-partisan and required completely neutral and data driven content to avoid any bias in the insights provided to the citizens.


The client required our team to conduct a thorough and careful study of data sources, architectural choices and innovative search engine optimization techniques. Product involved a sophisticated phased roadmap required to be delivered over a period of years. The core requirement was to build a highly scalable, adaptable and agile product framework and architecture. We were also tasked with engaging content writers to deliver thousands of articles for educating citizens on various topics related with their politics and society. Product envisioned additional roles and content created for analysts and institutions that require bulk data and deeper insights using data analytics and AI.

Our team
The project was a resounding success, with the system adeptly capturing and converting key SDOH elements, which influence 70% of a patient’s health, into actionable tasks. This approach significantly enhanced the positive impact on patient population health, enabling healthcare providers to address SDOH factors effectively and contribute substantially to overall health improvement.
