Program Description
Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the economic and social conditions that influence individual and group differences in health status. They are conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age and may impact a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. More data is needed to assist in identifying these contributing factors; thus, health information professionals can assist by assigning ICD-10-CM codes.


With SDOH data, we can better understand the patient story, how and when to provide social services and other types of care and treatment. HIM professionals need to be aware of and help with the coding and reporting of these determinants. Now is the time to learn about SDOH and initiate ICD-10-CM code assignment by developing departmental policies.


This webinar will cover:

  • Overview of social determinants of health
  • ICD-10-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting
  • Actions to take through awareness and policy making
  • Case scenarios
  • Question/Answer
