About Optum’s SDOH Services: 

Optum provides strategy and consulting to payers incorporating traditional and non-traditional data sources, like SDOH, using advanced analytics. Optum is able to predict several SDOH factors like food insecurity, housing insecurity, financial insecurity, and social isolation at the member level with high accuracy across multiple populations. When combined with traditional data, a holistic view of the member is created, that can be used with advanced analytics to improve clinical, operational, and financial outcomes.
