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. Integrating SDOH screenings into primary care visits has driven a culture shift among clinical staff enabling clinicians to easily identify patients for whom prevention and early intervention might mitigate social needs, resulting in fewer ED visits and avoidable readmissions. 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.
