Identifying the social determinant of health drivers of poor outcomes and higher costs is increasingly important in today’s value based environment. By collecting standardized data on the social determinants of health, health centers and other providers can better understand the complexity of their patient populations and provide them with needed services, whether in-house or through community partnerships. The Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks and Experiences (PRAPARE) is a standardized social determinant of health risk assessment tool developed by NACHC, in partnership with AAPCHO and OPCA, to help health centers inform care transformation and demonstrate the value they bring to patients, communities, and payers.
This session will pr
ovide an introduction to PRAPARE, replicable implementation strategies based on best practices from early adopting health centers, and examples of how it has led to impactful change at the patient-, provider-, organizational-, community-, and state policy levels. This session will incorporate both didactic as well as interactive and peer learning to build organizational readiness for social determinant of health data collection.
