ProMedica has embedded two evidence-based food insecurity screening questions into its electronic health record so that every inpatient is screened upon admission to the hospital. Patients who screen positive are visited by a member of the care team and offered additional community resources to access upon their return home, and are also provided with a basic food care package at discharge. In the metro-Toledo area, patients are also screened in the primary care setting. Providers write a referral for patients who screen positive to participate in ProMedica’s food clinic, where they receive several days of healthy food for the entire household. Patients may return once per month, for up to six months, before they need a new referral from their provider. Patients are offered healthy recipes, nutrition counseling and other community resources.
