Many health care providers and systems are developing and implementing processes to screen patients for social determinants of health and to refer patients to appropriate nonclinical and community-based resources. The largest public health care system in the United States, New York City Health + Hospitals, piloted such a program in 2017. A qualitative evaluation yielded insights into the implementation and feasibility of such screening and referral programs in health care systems serving low-income, minority, immigrant, and underserved populations.
