PTuC2 - Insights on SDOH Data Collection and Use for Advancing Health Equity Policies during COVID-19

‐ Mar 16, 2021 11:30am

As health centers have quickly adjusted to assess and address the SDOH needs of their communities during COVID-19, the PRAPARE Team at NACHC and AAPCHO engaged with PRAPARE users in May 2020 through a survey and virtual community forum. The purpose was to get an overview on SDOH-related efforts at health centers and their use of SDOH data to advance health equity. This session will present preliminary findings of the 2nd installment of the PRAPARE user survey (February 2021) on SDOH data collection and use during COVID-19. Findings will be shared within context of the health center journey in navigating SDOH needs during COVID-19 and policy implications/considerations related to health equity. Hear from health centers utilizing SDOH screening to inform and target COVID-19 response.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how health centers have adjusted their SDOH data collection efforts through preliminary survey findings.
  • Hear from a health center on their SDOH data collection efforts since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and the use of SDOH data to inform COVID-19 response policies or widespread strategies.
  • Discuss how survey findings can potentially inform policies during COVID-19 response and recovery phases at local, state, and national levels.
