The development of effective partnerships between health care organizations, such as hospitals and community health centers, and community organizations, such as public health departments and social services, is an important priority because of 3 converging factors: (1) the recognition that social needs, such as housing and food insecurity, have significant effects on health outcomes; (2) the shift toward value-based care and alternative payment models, which drive attention to social needs; and (3) a bipartisan focus on building a more healthy society and improving community health.
