Federal Activities and Approaches to Advance Social Determinants of Health Data Use and Interoperability in Support of Community Health Centers
HITEQ Highlights Webinar
Health centers now report on social determinant of health screening activities and many use the PRAPARE tool for this purpose; for years, however, health centers have focused on the broader health and social needs of the individuals they serve often making referrals to community based organizations and utilizing available enabling services. Today, there is growing interest and awareness on the value and use of interoperable social determinants of health (SDoH) data to support individual, community, and population level health improvement. View this HITEQ Center webinar, where the The Health and Human Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT present on the current state of federal activities and standards based approaches for collecting, sharing, and using SDoH data with a focus on technical and policy considerations. The presentation describes available standards, tools, and initiatives for health center use and input.
