This study will determine whether existing Health Information Technology can be leveraged to 1) implement a universal, patient-centered social needs assessment and referral process during routine Emergency Department care; 2) understand whether linking social needs assessment, community based referral, and health outcomes data may facilitate an understanding of population health; and 3) address the needs and wishes of patients and clinicians.
Hypothesis: Results of this study will provide much needed information to already overburdened hospital systems regarding whether systematically incorporating social needs information and referrals into emergency discharge processes allows for a better understanding of factors placing patients at risk for poor outcomes post-discharge, and whether doing so has potential for enhancing discharge support for a larger patient population seen in emergency departments.

Patients with one or more reported social need will be referred to 211 for community based services. 211 will reach out and contact patients for follow-up.
- Health Utilization Outcome questionnaire [ Time Frame: 60 days ]The variable will be created by combining primary care utilization (yes/no), ED revisit (yes/no), and hospitalization (yes/no) within 60 days of original ED visit. Scores range from 0 to 3. Higher scores indicate worse health utilization outcomes.
