UDS Quick Guide for Federally Funded Health Centers
Federally funded health centers and health center “look-alikes” (collectively health centers) report on all sorts of data about patients and performance, including housing and homeless status. In fact, as part of the 2019 Uniform Data System (UDS) Data Standard Updates, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) introduced for the first time a requirement that certain health centers track those patients who report living in permanent supportive housing. This UDS Quick Guide will inform health center staff on how UDS offers rich and quite detailed insight into the important operations of health centers.

HRSA Resource Spotlight
Focusing on Structural Racism To Address Social Determinants of Health
The concept of social determinants of health (SDOH) is rooted in an understanding that the conditions that people are born into (and live in) shape their health. It is essential that efforts to improve patient health must address not only medical care, but physical environment, social and economic needs, health behaviors, and other factors.
Structural racism is a primary driver of inequities in the conditions in which people of color are born and live, therefore all work to improve health by addressing SDOH requires an explicit focus on addressing structural racism and mitigating its impact on patients. This paper will provide examples of how structural racism in housing has affected inequities in SDOH and health outcomes.
