We've joined our RTI Health Solutions colleagues under the RTI Health Solutions brand to offer an expanded set of research and consulting services.

Social Determinants Of Health

Our team of clinicians and social risk analysts create valuable content on social risk, social determinants of health, and how economic and social conditions influence individual and population health disparities. Through our content, consulting services, and RTI Rarity™ Local Social Inequity score (LSI), our team works with healthcare and community organizations to reveal and address the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. From gathering social risk data and creating health equity strategic plans to designing SDoH payment models and effective interventions, our goal is to lower social risk and use precious resources to improve health outcomes.
