The Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) is a standardized tool for collecting social determinants of health (SDH) data to better serve diverse patient populations. PRAPARE was developed by NACHC, and has been piloted nationwide with FQHCs using a variety of EHR systems. When collected in a consistent manner, SDH data can be leveraged to better address social needs, improve population health, facilitate linkages to community resources, and support value-based payment. Ultimately, PRAPARE allows health centers to better capture unique factors that inform patient care and impact health outcomes. Data collected through the PRAPARE tool can be used to drive care transformation, integration, health improvement, and reduce overall costs.
