The days are gone when health issues would be treated clinically in isolation from the many other factors that affect the wellbeing of individuals and communities. Today, the rising costs of health care, an aging population and increasingly complex chronic health problems are driving greater focus and attention on population health the health outcomes of a group of individuals within a population. Indeed, these days more proactive approaches to health care and care delivery are identifying the social determinants of health for various populations such as environmental conditions, economic status, and access to resources and support.
