Screening for social connectedness to link people to community resources

PARTNERme is a person-centered social connectedness screening and referral tool. Using social network analysis, it maps an individual’s social network, identifies their most pressing need with the least amount of social support, and then links them to helpful resources in the community that improve their health and well-being. 

80% of Health Outcomes Are Driven by Social and Economic Needs

Yet Most Provider Still Aren't Collecting Data On These Needs

PARTNERme quantifies social needs using a strength-based screening that visualizes an individual’s existing social support network. It provides actionable data with a built-in referral system that connects patients to community resources to meet their needs, improving care and strengthening the provider-patient relationship.

PARTNERme is Unique

It uses social network analysis to visualize social support networks and identify gaps.

PARTNERme uses social network to create a map of an individual’s social supports, like family and friends. It shows how their network works together to support their health and well-being. With metrics like trust, dependency, and loneliness, the tool provides an unparalleled level of social connectedness insight to inform and improve interventions.

PARTNERme is an Award-Winning Innovation for Strengthening Health Equity

PARTNERme is the first and only tool specifically built to measure and strength social connectedness, and it’s making waves in a number of industries. We took first place for developing PARTNERme in competitions including the Colorado Prime Health Innovation Challenge, Fight Back Fellowship, and Innovator Society. Watch our full Pitch from the Prime Health Challenge below.

“PARTNERme has the potential to transform the way care is provided to patients. It illustrates how important it is to ask questions to patients that will get us to a better understanding of their system to coordinate and improve care.”

Dr. Rachel Hogg-Graham

National Coordinating Center for Coordinating Services

“I loved the easy accessibility of resources that were catered specifically for the families by location and based on level of need, indicated by their answers on the PARTNERme screening.”

Emily Fried, LCSW, MSEd, CLC, IMH-E (III)

Every Child Pediatrics Integrated Care Clinic
