Connecting Health Care and Social Services
Patients with multiple and complex health conditions, mental health problems, and/or limited English proficiency often need a range of social services and support to manage their conditions. Health care providers and organizations can help patients connect to behavioral health services, social support, financial assistance programs, and other services that address their specific needs.

The featured Innovations describe three different programs that help vulnerable populations access needed social services.

The featured QualityTools help health care providers refer patients to services and to identify community-based resources.
