Community Resource Directory – Exploring a Way to Link Patients to Local Support Services
Social determinants of health clearly impact the health of the patients we serve. Wouldn’t it be great if the Electronic Health Record (EHR) could easily provide information about available local support services right at the point of care? Based on interest expressed by ICSI members, we are exploring the possibility of collaborating to implement a Community Resource Directory that links EHRs directly with social service agencies that can help patients access the services they need to overcome barriers to better health.

PDR found that ICSI’s QI model created focus and helped them adhere to a reasonable timeline to accomplish their
goals. Learn more.
