OVERVIEW: The National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) was established in 2017 to accelerate advancements in informatics by using findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR) principles to promote collaboration across the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program community. 

GOALS: The goal of SC CTSI participation in CD2H is to facilitate the incorporation of social and environmental determinants of health into electronic health records for use in clinical research and predictive analytics.

CURRENT STATUS: SC CTSI is leading a phase IV project to allow other institutions to implement the social and environmental determinants of health. Specifically, SC CTSI's role is to serve as a resource center that will assist other institutions with the implementation of these data points.
