Improving health outcomes, reducing disparities and creating a more equitable world
The goal of health equity is to make sure everyone gets the high-quality care they deserve, according to their specific needs. At Accenture, we believe that humanizing healthcare for all members of the community involves taking a health equity lens to every aspect of healthcare delivery.
In this video, Dr. Ankoor Shah, Accenture’s Health Equity Lead, talks with Dan Miller, CEO of Spora Health, a telemedicine provider focused on health equity. Together, they explore what health equity means and how data-driven, artificial intelligence-powered tools can help health organizations make more culture-centered decisions and increase equitable outcomes for patients.
The HIMSS Global Health Equity Network is expanding HIMSS’ inclusion efforts to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to health and wellness. The network puts a greater focus on underrepresented groups in health information and technology, drives a more diverse and innovative workforce, and ensures the design of systems and solutions support people from all backgrounds.
Through the African American, Latinx, and Women in Health IT communities, the Network focuses on moving outside of the hospital setting and into the community in order to have the total picture of a person’s health and to address barriers of access to health and wellness.
