Prevalence of patient-reported social risk factors and receipt of assistance in federally funded health centers
Interest in integrating social and medical care in the US health care system is growing. This is especially true in Bureau of Primary Healthcare (BPHC)–funded health centers, which disproportionately serve patients whose health is affected by socioeconomic disadvantage. Little is known about the prevalence of social risks or social care interventions in BPHC settings. The current study examines the prevalence of social risk factors and social care among patients served in BPHC-funded health centers.
