Lessons Learned: Implementing and Expanding Social Needs Screening Programs in Health Centers - Session 5: Learning Lab

HITEQ Learning Collaborative Series

This learning collaborative by the HITEQ Center allowed participants to learn about health center promising practices and key considerations to support the successful collection, monitoring, and addressing of social needs data. During the series participants explored the levels of maturity in the social needs screening implementation process. Participants gained information on concrete strategies and IT solutions to help improve internal systems, such as EHR utilization and care team workflows, and increase their capacity to advance individual and population-level health.  Health center exemplars were also showcased.

The levels of maturity include: 

  • Level 1: Coming to Consensus

  • Level 2: Implementing a Social Needs Screening Tool

  • Level 3: Responding to Positive Screens

  • Level 4: Monitoring and Using Data

Session 5: Learning Lab: Health Center Sharing on Actions and Progress in Implementing and Advancing Their Social Needs Screening Program
