How EHR-based, non-clinical data boosts holistic patient care
from xtelligent Healthcare News
Patients' social determinants of health are becoming increasingly important for physicians to understand and address. These non-clinical factors influence health outcomes more than direct care, so providers need tools to understand the impact these determinants have on their patients if they are to appropriately address them. Information on patients' social determinants of health is often sensitive, disparate, and outdated. Some organizations are implementing screening tools to ask patients about their challenges at the point of care while others are integration non-traditional data sources like the Census to understand patient's needs.
