Advancing Health Equity and Data (AHEAD) Collaborative
The unique role of Oregon’s health centers in addressing the social determinants of health can only be accomplished through access to data. AHEAD is a two track collaborative focuses on supporting health centers in collecting and utilizing social determinants of health data to demonstrate value, will highlight best practices in health centers both locally and nationally, and will consist of face-to-face, webinar, and peer-learning opportunities.
- Align with your CHC peers to develop a common vision and standardized pool of social determinant of health (SDH) data as a statewide network.
- Advance in your knowledge of analytic capacity and use population health equity data for advocacy purposes at the local, state and federal levels.
- Develop and refine workflows, data collection processes, and EMR use of the Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patient Assets, Risks and Experiences (PRAPARE) tool
- Prepare for future funding opportunities and state incentive metrics that call for a focus on SDH
