“Socioeconomic Risk Screening, Documentation, and Interventions”

Speaker: Ben Lacar, PhD, Innovate for Health Fellow

Abstract: Social determinants of health (SDOH) are conditions of the environments of people that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes. Despite the recent recognition that social adversity can negatively affect health, patient-level screening for socioeconomic adversity or protective factors has not gained widespread adoption. Barriers to screening include logistical barriers (e.g. limited time with patient, constraints of electronic health records) and relational barriers (e.g. lack of trust). Furthermore, patients and providers may be reluctant to discuss socioeconomic conditions in the absence of meaningful interventions. I seek to address tools that can support socioeconomic risk screening, documentation, and related interventions.


“Situational Awareness Support Dashboard for Clinicians”

Speaker: Akram Bayat, PhD, Innovate for Health Fellow

Abstract: Situational awareness plays an important role in healthcare when clinicians make crucial operational decisions that have direct impact on patient outcomes. Situational awareness ensures that the right information is aggregated, comprehended, and projected correctly at the right time, but this is especially challenging as the volume of healthcare data increases and a clinician must quickly assess a patient’s medical history by searching for information that is scattered across multiple screens in the EHR. Our porosed Situational Awareness Support Dashboard (SASD) brings disparate data streams into a common operational display for real-time data-driven insights and actionable intelligence. SASD launches from a patient’s EHR encounter and delivers patient information into a dashboard with one click. SASD helps clinicians think thoughtfully and adapt a holistic view of the patient’s health trajectory to ensure optimal treatment plans especially for complex patients such as patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions.
