Social and Health Needs

Good health outcomes start in the communities where your patients live. Starting September 20, we invite you to Connect with Us by taking the Providers CARE Survey.

By taking the survey, you’ll give us information about challenges your patients are facing in their communities. Our goal is to help you improve your patients’ health by:

C= Connecting them with community resources (like food pantries and housing help);
A= Acting for better health by teaching them about their care needs;
R= Reducing stigma by showing compassion to others and taking time to think about your actions and thoughts about yourself and others; and
E= Empowering yourself and others. Take the time to listen to your patients. Treating them with kindness and support can help them take the steps they need for better health and supporting them on their journeys to better health

We are here to help you Connect your patients to CARE.  The CARE survey will ask you about the needs of your patients and learning opportunities that can assist your practice team.

To fill out the survey, please visit: https://stateoftennessee-cvlyz.formstack.com/forms/provider_survey_questions

Your answers will not have your name on them and will be combined with information from other providers.

Thank you for caring about the health of your community.

Health Disparities Information

The National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities created a Language Access Portal (LAP). The LAP contains information, in multiple languages, for six disease areas (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and more) where major health disparities have been identified in non-English speaking populations.
