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

To better address social determinants of health (SDOH) factors that impact its population and the total cost of care, Montefiore Health System moved from a paper-based SDOH screening at a few clinics to a pilot program at 23 clinics with an EPIC®-supported screening. During Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Collecting and Responding to Data in the Primary Care Setting, a June 29, 2017 webinar, Dr. Amanda Parsons, MBA, vice president of community and population health at Montefiore Health System, will provide insight into the evolution of SDOH screening into an EPIC-supported process at her organization.
