Healthy Volunteer Studies

Social determinants (SDOH) are now recognized as playing an important role in health care outcomes. Now more than ever, health care providers are expected to understand the patient's social background, and health care systems are being held accountable for addressing social factors as part of population health management. Health information technology (HIT) is being utilized to increase the efficiency and quality of health care, improve access to care, and enhance the public's health. Therefore, the goal of this study is to develop HIT strategies that can be used to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of identifying SDOH among primary care patients in the MUSC Health Care System.
