AAP Guidance for Well Visit Screening

The AAP recommends as part of PCMH 2017 that practices screen for two additional issues during Well Visits:

Food Insecurity

Health Literacy

OP 14 has added these two issues to the Well Visit ROS under a new category labeled Social Determinants of Health. In the screen capture above, the first two questions pertain to Food Insecurity and the third question pertains to Health Literacy.

Note: Practices can optionally add these screening topics to Well Visit templates.
