Health Outcomes in Hematologic Malignancies Impacted By Insurance, Marital, and Economic Status

September 7th 2023

Findings from a systematic review of several observational studies reveal that increasing disparities in survival outcomes within hematologic malignancies can be primarily attributed to 5 social determinants of health: lack of access to health insurance, treatment at a non-academic facility, low income or education level, and unmarried status.
