Health Equity

This work targets equity in the care of all patients regardless of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status and literacy level. Recognizing the impact all of these aspects and the associated social determinants have on the health outcomes of specific populations, we strive to accurately collect race, ethnicity and language data, and effectively target efforts to improve care for the unique patient populations served by hospitals and health systems in EQIC states.

We focus on:

  • building and sustaining an organizational response to eliminating disparities and achieving health equity;
  • making health literacy and cultural competency an institutional priority; and
  • addressing social determinants of health and preventing readmissions.
