Hot Topic: Realizing the Promise of Precision Health to Advance Health Equity

Tuesday, March 21

7:00–8:30 a.m.

The COVID-19 pandemic cast a harsh spotlight on health disparities in the U.S., highlighting a long-standing gap in health outcomes by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, geography and gender. Vulnerable populations are further jeopardized by their higher risk of adverse climate-related health impacts. In this presentation, Dr. Lee will discuss the opportunities to use data and technology to deliver personalized care at scale, to reduce inequities and bias by applying relevant evidence-based care, and to measure and surface the measurements that can identify and drive greater health equity across all participants in the healthcare ecosystem. If leveraged well, digital technology and analytic tools can realize the promise of precision health to advance health equity.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify approaches for leveraging data to advance health equity.
  • Describe how technology can be used to deliver personalized care at scale.
