Clinical Decision Support and Care Plan Adjustment for Social Risks
HITEQ Highlights Webinar
When clinical teams have information on patients' social risks (adverse social determinants of health), they can make care plan adjustments to account for those risks, e.g., by prescribing lower-cost medications. Come hear about a team that worked with stakeholders from primary care community health centers to develop a set of EHR-based tools intended to support making such adjustments in care for patients with hypertension and / or diabetes. This talk described the tool development process, results from pilot testing the tools in three clinic sites, and how the tools were revised in response to pilot process learnings.
