Screening Patient Social Connectedness in Colorado Primary Care Clinics
December 2020 – Ongoing // Colorado Project // PARTNERme
Partnering with the CO Center for Primary Care Innovation to integrate social connectedness screening at the Westminster Medical Clinic.
Visible Network Labs and the Colorado Center for Primary Care Innovation are partnering together to help implement social connectedness screening at the Westminster Medical Clinic in the Denver, Colorado Metropolitan area.
While we know that an individual’s social connectedness directly affects their health and wellness, primary care providers lack the tools needed to measure and strengthen their patients’ support networks. We are helping the Westminster Clinic use PARTNERme to map their patient support networks, identify critical needs and gaps in support, and refer them to community resources. Our project goal is to demonstrate how this process can cut costs and improve outcomes while also strengthening the patient-provider relationship and trust.
The results from this pilot project will be used to inform and improve our efforts to scale the use of PARTNERme in primary care clinics throughout Colorado and the United States, with the support of the CO Center for Primary Care Innovation.
This pilot project is possible thanks to funding from the Prime Health Innovation Challenge.
