As PRAPARE is increasingly used by care teams nationally to assess patient social determinants of health (SDOH) needs, it is critical to have a standardized system to track the social interventions provided in response. Such systems can promote cross-sector collaboration to assess and address social factors to facilitate comprehensive care coordination to “close the loop” for patients in achieving health equity. Use of the national standardized social interventions protocol would also promote collaborative data collection, aggregation, reporting, exchange, and communication by cross-sector partners to comprehensively assess and address SDOH and close disparity gaps for their patients.
This session will examine the PRAPARE Social Interventions Protocol that integrates stakeholder lessons learned and best practices collected through an iteractive process of development with a national Social Interventions Technical Expert Panel (TEP) of diverse cross-sector partners. Experiences of organizations in conducting PDSA evaluations, using the protocol, will also be shared. Overall, the vision for the PRAPARE Social Interventions Protocol is an integrated system facilitating access to critical patient social care information from cross-sector providers, so that care teams internally and externally can collaborate in a more effective, coordinated way to proactively assess and address patient social risks.
Understand the importance of tracking interventions provided in response to SDOH needs.
Describe the data collection protocol to track social interventions provided in response to the identification of PRAPARE SDOH needs.
