Fostering Independence While Effectively Managing Risk
Health Risk Screening: Predictive, Proactive, Preventative
For individuals with significant, ongoing health requirements and service coordination needs, it is essential to provide a system that helps in evaluating and managing health risk. Routine screening for health risks will assist in focusing provision of health care resources on areas that will yield the best possible outcomes.
The Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) identifies and tracks health risks in vulnerable populations, making it possible to design a plan tailored to meet the unique health and safety needs of each individual in the least restrictive setting. The instrument can objectively justify resources allocated both financially and in service intensity.
