In collaboration with Health Outreach Partners (HOP), AAPCHO promoted the importance of documenting social determinants of health (SDoH) interventions to demonstrate the value and scope of health center enabling services (ES). AAPCHO and HOP was joined by the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) to highlight how state, regional, and national partners can leverage SDoH and ES data for Value-Based Payment (VBP).
Through a live, national webinar, participants learned useful strategies with tools and resources to successfully implement a standardized data collection methodology for the tracking and documentation of non-clinical data. In turn, health center stakeholders, including health center and Primary Care Association (PCA) staff, gained skills to articulate or better demonstrate how they are using non-clinical, ES data for VBP. This national webinar was conducted for health center and PCA staff to share insights and recommendations on how they plan to use enabling services data for the transition to VBP in their local, state, or regional context.
- To promote the importance of standardized data collection strategies for SDoH and enabling services in a VBP environment
- To share strategies and instill confidence in a health center’s ability to document enabling services interventions in a standardized way
- To showcase a real life example of how PCAs and health centers are promoting and implementing data collection and standardized documentation for SDoH and ES
