Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) vocabularies?


(William Adams) #1

We are hoping to develop a controlled vocabulary for Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). Before we create our own vocabulary, we would very much appreciate knowing if others are working on (or have completed) standard vocabularies for national SDoH screening Instruments - especially PRAPARE, AHC, and/or We Care. Thanks!

Hi @Andrew,

SNOMED is getting better under their social_context root.

I attended an AMIA symposium presentation a couple of years ago when they did a big survey of tools and vocabularies out there for SDOH. And I found the link on PubMed is below

Are you watching the N3C SDoH demo right now? You should join that group. It’s good.
