PRAPARE Implementation and Action Toolkit
The Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE)
The Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) is a national effort to help health centers and other providers collect the data needed to better understand and act on their patients’ social determinants of health. As providers are increasingly held accountable for reaching population health goals while reducing costs, it is important that they have tools and strategies to identify the upstream socioeconomic drivers of poor outcomes and higher costs. With data on the social determinants of health, health centers and other providers can define and document the increased complexity of their patients, transform care with integrated services and community partnerships to meet the needs of their patients, advocate for change in their communities, and demonstrate the value they bring to patients, communities, and payers.
The PRAPARE Assessment Tool consists of a set of national core measures as well as a set of optional measures for community priorities.
The PRAPARE Implementation and Action Toolkit will be freely available online as of Sept. 2016 with contain resources, best practices, and lessons learned to help guide interested users in each step of the implementation process.
