The AHA, in collaboration with its Institute for Diversity and Health Equity, today released two resources to support hospital and health system efforts to eliminate health disparities. The first is a white paper that provides a snapshot into the state of health care equity; a discussion guide for leadership teams; and actionable steps hospitals and health systems can take to make a difference. The second is a resource with measures and tools that can assist organizations in identifying the right equity metrics to measure and track progress in these pivotal areas.
