EMR-based poverty screening in the primary care setting
About the project
Funded by the Local Poverty Reduction Fund for 15 months starting on Feb. 1, 2017, the project focused on developing an electronic medical record (EMR) integrated strategy to screen and identify poverty in primary care. Additionally, the project enabled providers to intervene on behalf of their patients affected by poverty or low socioeconomic status, by appropriately managing and/or referring patients to social support programs.
