Provision of social services and health care quality in US community health centers, 2017.
The authors describe the types of social services provided at community health centers (CHCs), characteristics of CHCs providing these services, and the association between on-site provision and health care quality. Their findings indicate that CHCs most often offered on-site assistance for needs related to food or nutriion, interpersonal violence, and housing. Participation in projects with community-based organizations was associated with providing services on-site. On-site provision was associated with better performance on measures of health care quality. They conclude that some CHCs provide social services on-site, and this was associated with better performance on measures of health care quality.
