Planning for the Spread of Protocol for Responding to and Addressing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) in California
Test PRAPARE with community health centers in California as a tool for collecting patient information on social determinants of health, and to develop a roadmap that will support widespread adoption of PRAPARE in the California safety net.
PRAPARE is a national effort to help health centers and other providers collect and apply the data they need to better understand their patients’ social determinants of the health (SDH). As providers are increasingly held accountable for reaching population health goals, they need tools and strategies to identify the upstream socioeconomic drivers of poor outcomes and higher costs. With this data, they can transform care with integrated services to meet the needs of their patients, address the SDH, and demonstrate the value they bring to patients, communities, and payers.
