Please join the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) for the Screening and Referral for Social Determinants of Health: Innovative Health Care Applications and Future Directions meeting on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET at the Porter Neuroscience Research Center (Building 35A).
In 2014, the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) recommended the standard capture of 12 health-related social and behavioral measures in electronic health records (EHR). Social and behavioral measures are now routinely collected in many EHR systems and are increasingly being used in clinical care and population health assessment. Routine screening for a patient’s unmet social needs and adverse health behaviors, combined with referral to precision interventions to reduce the patient’s health risks associated with these “social determinants,” is an emerging trend in healthcare. This one-day meeting will highlight recent innovative applications and ongoing research, and facilitate dialogue between scientific researchers in the field and staff from NIH and other federal agencies regarding future research directions.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Free registration for this event is required.
This meeting will not be live webcast. Please register to attend this meeting in person. https://www.scgcorp.com/SocialDeterminants18/
