CMS' Accountable Health Communities Model and other population health initiatives encourage healthcare organizations to address the broad range of social, economic and environmental factors that shape an individual's health. Research has shown that these factors can play an even bigger role in affecting health, than access to healthcare. HealthyPeople 2020 highlighted the importance of addressing the social determinants of health by including "Create social and physical environments that promote good health for all" as one of the four overarching goals for the decade. According to the organization, resources that enhance quality of life can have a significant influence on population health outcomes.
