Preliminary data revealed that, 13 273 patients were screened across four sites and three disciplines:
~2/3rd of patients identified with social needs had previously undetected needs, and 60% of these are enrolled in autonomous navigation to address social service needs.
Most used methods of communication were Text message 54% followed by the Online Chat used by the patients. The completion rate of the screenings was 72% and there was a 23% followup completion rate for the SDoH Screenings.
Of the population, 27% screened positive for food insecurity, 25% screened positive for housing insecurity, 12% screened positive for transportation needs, 8% screened positive for utility needs, and 1% screened positive for safety needs.
The Food security and NEMT transport referrals were configured to be autonomously served.
Hence 48% of the needs were autonomously served using the platform while for the rest the loop closure was 3X faster than any methods before.
Of the population screened, 82% identified as Hispanic, 14% identified as Black/African American, and 68% identified as female. The average household size was 3.6, with an average household income of $24 000
