As you know, the social determinants of health aren’t always related to poverty level or socioeconomic status. That’s why the American Academy of Family Physicians has created The EveryONE Project toolkit with screening questions to help unearth specific, recurring, and often life-altering issues for patients of all backgrounds. The questions have been tested, validated, and purposefully assembled to reveal the health hurdles your patients are facing.
Regardless of your familiarity or experience level with social determinants of health, The EveryONE Project toolkit is designed to be simple, intuitive, and action oriented. Your care team can assist with administering screenings, and patients will appreciate your vested interest in their health journeys.
We know you are busy, and screening for social determinants might not be your top priority; however, these issues can, will, or already do affect your patient outcomes, which in turn, affects value-based payment. It is important we work together to provide healthy solutions—for everyone—and thorough screenings are the first step.
Get started with The EveryONE Project screening toolkit today.
Be sure to watch for additional resources related to community engagement, collaborative partnerships, and enhanced advocacy efforts as the AAFP continues to unveil installments of the toolkit throughout 2018.
