Problems/Health Concerns
A Health Concern is the outcome of an assessment process where the assessment tool has identified a specific SDOH-related concern (e.g. unable to obtain adequate food). The Health Concern might also be promoted to a Problem or diagnosis based on the assessment of the provider in conjunction with the patient. The ability to document and communicate this element is essential to managing the impact of an SDOH risk across the various involved entities (e.g., providers, payers, social services, community-based organizations, etc.).
