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 and apply the data they need better to understand their patients’ social determinants of health, transform care to meet the needs of their patients, and ultimately improve health and reduce costs. The PRAPARE approach is especially valuable in light of COVID-19 because many social support and economic resources (including jobs) have been threatened or lost, and these changes are likely to impact patients’ overall health. 

This collaborative learning series, presented by the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), will include coaching calls and guidance on the modularized toolkit. October sessions will assist in identifying and preparing health center teams to assess their readiness to implement a new data collection initiative on socioeconomic needs and circumstances. Following these two sessions, the series will move into coaching calls with each health center team and continue into 2021 with guided implementation of the PRAPARE toolkit. Each session will include a 15-minute study hall and a log-in period in the beginning and an optional 15-minute window at the end for office hours and additional Q & A.
