Integrating social screening tool into clinical care improves outcomes
When patients from specific neighborhoods come to NewYork-Presbyterian for medical care, they are now screened for social determinants of health and linked to community resources to support their return to health and wellness.

Additionally, providers in the ED are developing their own curriculum on social emergency medicine to educate future emergency providers and medical residents. Read more under Key Resources.
