North Carolina HHS partners with Phreesia for social determinants program

North Carolina's Department of Health and Human Services tapped Phreesia, a New York City-based patient intake software company, to expand the reach of the state's initiative to address social determinants of health.

Healthcare providers will now be able to assess the social needs of a wider range of patients by automatically delivering North Carolina's Standardized Social Determinants of Health Screening Questions via Phreesia. The platform will then immediately notify providers of any unmet social needs, therefore improving care options and quality.

Additionally, Phreesia's system also offers population-level analytics, allowing the state's healthcare organizations to better understand the social needs of residents both on an individual level and as a whole.

The platform will work alongside NCCARE360, a coordinated care network currently being rolled out across North Carolina. The network digitally connects patients with appropriate healthcare providers and resources in accordance with their social determinants assessment.
