13 – Standardizing the Collection of Social and Economic Risk Data (pop health, strategy)

Providers serving complex, underserved populations need tools and strategies to identify the social and economic factors impacting health. Identifying and managing these factors is especially important in today’s value-based pay environment, where providers are increasingly held accountable for reaching quality targets and lowering costs of care. 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 to better understand their patients’ social and economic risks to transform care to meet patient and population needs, and demonstrate the value they bring to patients, communities, and payers. This session will discuss how data on patient social risk is foundational for driving delivery system and payment reform.
