Boston Medical Center-Thrive Screening Tool

Boston – Boston Medical Center (BMC) has implemented a social determinants of health screener for primary care patients in order to better identify and address patients’ unmet social needs. Clinician researchers developed the electronic health record-based (EHR) model, THRIVE, which facilitates an automatic print out of referral information for resources based at the hospital and in the community when the patient asks for help with a need they have identified in the screener. The hospital’s work, published in Medical Care, demonstrates an innovative systematic model that can help clinicians better address the social needs of patients to improve their overall health.
