New resource to help identify and address social and non-medical needs

Today marks the launch of the Social Interventions Research & Evaluation Network (SIREN) website, a new resource for health services researchers, clinicians, health system leaders, and others looking for evidence on what works to identify and address patients’ social and economic needs as a part of high quality health care.

Use the SIREN website to:

On the site you’ll also see they are accepting applications for SIREN’s Innovation Grants. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Kaiser Permanente have teamed up with SIREN to support a small number of research projects to advance our understanding of the health care costs and utilization impacts of addressing patients’ social determinants of health. Grants will provide up to $150,000 total funding over two years.

Letters of Intent are due May 15, 2017 and full applications are due June 15, 2017.

SIREN’s mission is to catalyze and disseminate high quality research that advances efforts to address patients’ social and economic needs in health care settings. Learn more here.
