With more than 35 years of experience working with clinical data, 3M provides expertise that, when combined with the curated repository for social risk intelligence from Socially Determined®, allows for integrated clinical, social and population health analytics at scale.
Combining social and clinical risk using 3M™ Clinical Risk Groups (CRGs) allows 3M Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) Analytics to provide a complete picture of a patient, community and delivery network.

Depending on clinical data alone often delivers an incomplete and latent picture of the patient. When considering ways to improve health outcomes and reduce unnecessary expenditures – key performance indicators for any payer — it is important to consider social determinants of health (SDoH).
Health care providers and payers can use the platform to assess clinical and social risk factors, prioritize care and allocate resources for high risk individuals and populations within a health care delivery network. This enables the design of programs in collaboration with community-based organizations and managing the effectiveness of these programs over time.
By leveraging analytics, payers can manage population health through early identification, proactive care management and a more accurate assessment of risk. Payers and providers are empowered to:
A 2018 study showed a 10 percent reduction in health care costs – equating to more than $2,400 in annual savings per person – for people who were successfully connected to social services compared to a control group of members who were not. With 3M SDoH Analytics, it is easier than ever to make the connection between patients, their health and the community organizations that can best support them.
