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.
PRAPARE Innovation Case Studies are now Available!
- As part of our PRAPARE Innovation Awards, we have been working with health centers to highlight their innovative uses of PRAPARE. Check out the PRAPARE Trainings and Resources page to read how health centers have been using PRAPARE with special populations (e.g., pediatric populations, homeless populations, behavioral health patients) and in innovative ways (e.g., using Ipads/kiosks, using for risk stratification, linking with enabling services, developing business case).
PRAPARE is now on Twitter!

- PRAPARE Translated into Ten Languages – The PRAPARE team worked with a qualified translation vendor to translate PRAPARE. We then engaged health centers to validate and test the translations to ensure that they were accurate and culturally appropriate. The languages include Arabic, Burmese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Korean, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese.
- Updated PRAPARE Implementation and Action Toolkit – The PRAPARE team updated the PRAPARE Implementation and Action Toolkit with more best practices, lessons learned, and user stories and worked with a graphic designer to give it a new, professional, yet easy to use look. The PRAPARE Implementation and Action Toolkit is designed to provide interested users with the resources, best practices, and lessons learned to guide implementation, data collection and responses to social determinant needs.
