Population Health: Addressing Health Inequities

Date: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

It’s been 13 years since the Institute of Medicine published the landmark report Unequal Treatment, but the United States still struggles to address disparities in health and health care. Today, we have more tools to examine inequities, including The National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care (CLAS), the Finding Answers Roadmap to Reduce Disparities, and American Essential Hospitals’ Population Health Road Map. These tools translate research findings into applied models, but most organizations have limited experience incorporating equity into population health activities.

In this webinar, members of a team from The University of Chicago Medicine described their CLAS standards assessment and strategic plan to address variation in patient outcomes across populations. The team also shared strategy design and implementation frameworks, cultural competence training, action plans, implementation process assessment, and lessons learned.
