Building Capacity for Standardized Social Determinant of Health Data Collection: Using PRAPARE and ESDC to Address Health Inequities
Welcome Message

Preventive Medicine 2020 Online brought together leaders from medicine and public health to examine the most pressing issues in healthcare today, and how the Nation’s healthcare system can be transformed around prevention. This virtual meeting offered high-quality medical education programming, networking opportunities, and the recognition of the best in the profession.

The meeting was organized around critical topics including innovations in community health, public health policy, evidence and practice, health systems transformation and lifestyle medicine. Each meeting day was themed around two critical topics, with distinct sessions addressing shared themes in the practice of prevention.


Preventive Medicine 2020 Online focused on big, bold, upstream ideas and the people, places, and programs that are making them a reality today. Transformation is only possible with a clear vision, audacious goals, an innovative mindset, and the will to implement new policy and practice, honestly evaluate change, and engage stakeholders at every level.

The push towards value-based payment will increasingly hold providers accountable for reaching quality targets and lowering costs of care. Yet, it is difficult to improve outcomes and reduce spending without mitigating the socio-economic causes of poor health. The collection and application of more thorough data on patients’ complexity, including both social and clinical risk, are foundational for achieving the Triple Aim. The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC), the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), the Oregon Primary Care Association, and the Institute for Alternative Futures have collaborated with community health center partners to implement PRAPARE (Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patient Assets, Risks, and Experiences), a nationally recognized and tested standardized patient risk assessment protocol that goes beyond medical acuity to account for patients’ social determinants of health. In addition to PRAPARE, AAPCHO implemented the Enabling Services Accountability and Data Collection Project (ESDC) to increase Electronic Medical Record data collection on enabling services (ES) and study the impact of these services on health care access and outcomes. The purpose of this project is to illustrate the role ES play in increasing access and quality of health care for medically underserved communities, providing compelling data to adequately compensate health centers for delivering these services.
Outcome Objectives
  • At the conclusion of this session, participant will be able to learn about patient-reported social needs data collected through PRAPARE (Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patient Assets, Risks, and Experiences).
  • At the conclusion of this session, participant will be able to learn how the PRAPARE data has been used to inform care and/or population health management for community clinics and health centers.
  • At the conclusion of this session, participant will be able to explain the importance of Enabling Services data collection and documentation in order to understand the Social Determinants of Health needs of patients and demonstrate the value of enabling services that address them, as well as identify the role of Enabling Services in supporting value­-based care payment models.
