Abstract

To move the dial and drive the factors that impact 70% of health outcomes, we need a health and social services system that has the capacity and flexibility to address social determinants, and we need to better engage individuals in taking ownership of the factors they can control. The foundational elements that will then have the greatest impact on improving North Carolina's population health-when integrated-are Medicaid policy and metrics, social determinants, whole-person-centered models of care, and workforce development.
