Drivers of health: Physicians need connections

To help patients in need, physicians need connections with resources for assistance.

Community resources and increasing availability of referrals can help physicians connect patients with support systems they need to address drivers of health, says Physicians Foundation President Gary Price, MD, MBA. The Physicians Foundation has studied how these affect patient health, and believes a proposal by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for a Universal Foundation to measure drivers of health could lead to new ways for doctors to help patients deal with social and economic conditions that affect well-being.
