Patients with unmet behavioral health and social needs are major contributors to high healthcare utilization and poor health outcomes. This small percentage of the population consume a disproportionate share of resources, in part, because their needs are not being addressed.  Organizations that develop a complex care approach are able to better support their patients, create connections within the community, and decrease utilization. This series will explore the current evidence-based interventions, how to get started, validated screening tools, creating community connections, and closing the data loop.
