I believe Community Health Centers represent the best of America. From our Civil Rights roots, our strength lies in actively engaging and organizing our patients and communities to improve their health. We are unified in connecting who we serve with the systems and processes of how we serve – never forgetting why we serve. Our work – providing high quality care, advocating universal access, improving health systems, empowering community participation – means we are engines of economic and social mobility. Read More »


Getting Started and Strategizing PRAPARE Implementation Workflow Models: Best Practices and Lessons Learned

Monday, August 27, 2018

Meeting Code: CML2
Meeting Room: Orlando L

This session will highlight innovative examples of workflow models in different clinic settings and provide best practices and lessons learned when considering using each model and/or approach. A panel of both state association and health center staff will present workflow models that have been used to implement Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE), ranging from using clinical staff to non-clinical staff (community health workers, patient navigators, etc.) to integrating it with behavioral health. Presenters will also introduce strategies to help organizations determine which models will work best in their own workflow.
