Assessing Social Determinants of Health:
Collecting and Responding to Data
in the Primary Care Setting

There's still time to register for tomorrow's webinar, Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Collecting and Responding to Data in the Primary Care Setting.

As healthcare organizations take on more responsibility for the total cost of care of their populations, it's imperative to address factors related to the social determinants of health (SDOH) that could impact the population for which they're accountable.

Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Collecting and Responding to Data in the Primary Care SettingDuring the webinar, which starts at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Dr. Amanda Parsons, MBA, vice president of community and population health at Montefiore Health System, will provide insight into her organization's evolution of SDOH screening into an EPIC®-supported process.

You will learn:

  • How Montefiore moved from a paper-based SDOH screening at a few clinics to a pilot program at 23 clinics with an EPIC®-supported screening, including details on which SDOH assessment tools are used, how the screening fits into the clinical workflow and how staff responds to the screening results;
  • The importance of building the back-end support to respond to SDOH data before screening starts and what tools and resources Montefiore utilizes to address SDOH;
  • How Montefiore sets patient expectations for the SDOH factors for which it can provide assistance;
  • The challenges that Montefiore has addressed as it has moved through this pilot program, including details on overcoming staff push-back and mapping SDOH to ICD-10 codes; and
  • The steps Montefiore will be taking in the upcoming months to enhance the program, including plans for referral management of community-based services in the EHR; identifying which community-based services are delivering better care for potential payment alignment and implications for healthcare payors moving forward.
