Healthy Start Screening Tool Implementation Feedback 

The Healthy Start screening tool implementation process provides an ongoing opportunity to identify improvements to the tools to ensure patients’ needs are identified and addressed. As program staff implement the tools, the HS CoIIN recognizes that valuable lessons are being learned.  The CoIIN wants to document these lessons learned to improve the tools and their implementation.

The HS CoIIN members encourage all screening tool users to share your feedback on problems, best practices, and solutions related to Healthy Start screening tool implementation.  A simple reporting tool is available here: Healthy Start Screening Tool Implementation Feedback Survey

The EPIC Center will collect your lessons learned to be considered by the HS CoIIN when they evaluate revisions to the screening tools in the future.  It is important to understand that no substantive revisions can be made to the tools without OMB clearance.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

HS CoIIN and the EPIC Center

Your feedback will provide a knowledge base of solutions and best practices that can be shared with other programs.
