Learn how CHWs support social needs screening

On May 16, the Foundation for Health Care Quality and the Bree Collaborative hosted a webinar on Social Need Screening. In this session, we heard from CHAS Health on how community health workers (CHWs) supported their social need screening process. 

CHAS Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center that has served the Inland Northwest (Spokane County, the Latah Community, and the Lewis-Clark Valley) since 1994 with medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health services to individuals and families regardless of their ability to pay.

Health equity has long been a priority for CHAS Health and that work continues with the recent implementation of PRAPARE, a social needs screener.

During the Learning Lab, Kylie Kingsbury, a Health Equity Manager at CHAS Health, shared how their team worked through the process of rolling out the screener across the organization, adjusted as workflow issues arose, and still continues to fine-tune their processes.
