Despite the development of multiple, standardized means for screening patients for SDoH, practice leaders still spend significant time trying to decide which factors to include in these screenings. These screenings can get personal and include information patients may not relate to their health or may not want to share, so it turns into a case-by-case interaction without static, consistent evaluation criteria.
"Social determinants — your income, the neighborhood in which you live, your race, your education level — are powerful predictors of how healthy you will be. Only when we understand these outside factors can we address the obstacles that stand in the way of better health."
— Sarah Moyer, MD, director, Louisville Metro Department of Health and Wellness

From this report, you'll learn how to:
  • Develop an appropriate SDoH screener for your patients
  • Implement the screener into your practice's workflows
  • Communicate and engage with your patients to capture accurate data
  • And much more

In addition, you'll hear from practice leaders throughout the report weigh in on how they've overcome challenges in operationalizing SDoH screening, and where they see opportunities in the future.
