Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.†

The ACAP Center for SDOH Innovation provides a rich portfolio of shared services to facilitate and demonstrate the leadership of ACAP-member Safety Net Health Plans in the field of social determinants of health (SDOH).

The Center provides for a wide array of services for health plans in nurturing and disseminating best practices in the field of SDOH; it will develop tools and resources for policymakers, thought leaders, and others in the health care space.


SDOH Founders’ Circle

The work of the Center is guided by a Founders’ Circle of ACAP-member Safety Net Health Plans with a demonstrated investment in SDOH issues. The Founder’s Circle sets goals and objectives for the Center, and influences and oversees the Center’s work during the year.
