Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patient Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE)

AAPCHO collaborated with the National Association of Community Health Centers and Oregon Primary Care Association to develop PRAPARE, a nationally recognized and tested standardized patient risk assessment protocol that goes beyond medical acuity to account for patients’ social determinants of health. PRAPARE is both evidence-based and stakeholder-driven, containing measures on 21 social determinants of health that align with national initiatives.
