AHRQ has developed a new tool to help primary care practices screen and refer patients for social needs such as food or housing, so-called social determinants of health (SDOH) which, when identified, can help tailor care to patients’ circumstances.
The tool helps primary care practices:
- Find resources and information to get started on patient screening and referral
- Consider what approaches work best for their practice
- Understand how to use collected information to address patients’ social needs, tailor care to their circumstances, and maximize reimbursement.
