In 2014, the Institute of Medicine, now the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and 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 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 1-day workshop will highlight recent innovative applications and ongoing research and facilitate dialogue between scientific researchers in the field and staff from National Institutes of Health and other Federal agencies regarding future research directions. Products from this workshop will include a public access video archive of Sessions I and II and a published meeting summary.
