Leveraging the experience of several physician practices already screening patients for social determinants of health (SDOH) Montefiore Health System recently rolled out a two-tiered assessment program to measure SDOH positivity in its predominantly high-risk, government-insured population.
Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Screening Tools, Triage and Workflows to Link High-Risk Patients to Community Services outlines Montefiore's approach to identifying SDOH markers such as housing, finances, healthcare access and violence that drive 85 percent of patients' well-being, and then connecting high-need individuals to community-based services.
