HQIC Community of Practice Call | Health Disparities and Equity

Disability graphic

Health inequities are seen in rates of diseases, disability, the severity of disease, and access to treatment. Health equity requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination and their consequences including receiving quality health care. It is not enough for a hospital to provide world class care, we must actively help people receive that care. Join Alliant Health Solutions, TMF and the HQIC community as we present a practical framework for promoting health equity in your hospital.

During this conversation, recorded on April 14, Priya Bathija, Vice President of Strategic initiatives, and Julia Resnick, Director of Strategic Initiatives with the American Hospital Association shared tactics on how to drill down into data and a community partnering framework to address social needs and social determents of health, while also sharing tools and resources including a health equity roadmap. Leticia Rodriquez, CEO, and Brandy Wolf, Clinical Informatics and Pharmacy Manager at Ward Memorial also shared success stories around addressing COVID-19 and health equity from the perspective of a rural critical access hospital.
