A Framework for Stratifying Race, Ethnicity and Language Data

A Framework for Stratifying Race, Ethnicity and Language Data – October 2014 This guide provides a framework for hospitals and care systems to stratify patient race, ethnicity and language data and use them to identify and address health care disparities. Each hospital or care system can approach stratifying data differently; however, the general framework for the stratification effort is similar. In the guide you will find sample dashboards and outlined steps.
