Coding Social Determinants of Health

Some health centers have been using the National Association of Community Health Center (NACHC) Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) tool to document SDH data. This guide outlines existing ICD-10 z-codes that are a close match to questions in the PRAPARE tool to enable health centers to use structured data for practice change, patient care and evaluation.
