As part of its commitment to improving health equity, Health Quality Innovators (HQI) recently released a quick start guide to assist providers in meeting the requirements for the Screening for Social Drivers measures as part of the FY2023 IPPS/LTCH Final Rule. The Quick Start Guide: Screening for Social Determinants of Health provides an overview of social determinants of health (SDOH), general tips for incorporating SDOH screening into workflow and links to suggested resources. HQI created this Quick Start Guide for HQIC participating hospitals based on its experiences serving as an Accountable Health Communities (AHC) bridge organization in Virginia, coordinating screening and navigation of eligible Medicare and Medicaid patients to services that help them live healthier lives.
