CMA1 - Innovative Uses of PRAPARE to Improve Population Health of Racial/Ethnic Groups and Special Populations

‐ Aug 23, 2021 9:00am

This session will highlight how different health centers have used PRAPARE social determinants of health (SDOH) data to identify innovative techniques as part of their model of care and population health management strategies, with a focus on racial/ethnic groups and special populations.   The session will also highlight a new publication titled, "Collecting Standardized Data on Social Determinants of Health to Address Structural Racism, Drive Health Equity, and Respond to COVID-19." This publication presents key findings from a national assessment of training and technical assistance (T/TA) strategies for supporting community health centers in systematically implementing patient-level SDOH screening and data standards, documenting findings in clinical records, and developing strategies to address SDOH risk factors and needs at the patient and population levels. Additionally, the publication highlights key findings from interviews between T/TA providers and health centers regarding recommended SDOH screening strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how PRAPARE can enable health centers to advance health equity and demonstrate value.
  • Identify examples of how health centers are screening and addressing patient-level SDOH needs.
  • Consider strategies for using SDOH data for population health management, with a focus on racial/ethnic groups and special populations.
