Sponsored by: Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Collecting and Responding to Data in the Primary Care Setting

AllianceChicago is a collaboration of four federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and a developer of the social determinants of health (SDOH) assessment tool PRAPARE (Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patient Assets, Risks and Experiences). For the past 18 months, AllianceChicago has worked with 38 FQHCs to deploy the PRAPARE tool consistent with each center's patient population, staff resources and in-house and community support services. During Assessing Social Determinants of Health: Collecting and Responding to Data in the Primary Care Setting, a June 1, 2017 webinar, Andrew Hamilton, RN, BSN, MS, chief informatics officer/deputy director, AllianceChicago, will share the key learnings from AllianceChicago's SDOH work.
