About the Session

As the United States addresses health reform implementation, healthcare executives, administrators and providers are actively shaping solutions to our most pressing national issues. While rising healthcare costs and the attempts to curb spending have received much of the attention over the past decade, health equity solutions are now beginning to influence business practices. With the spotlight of COVID-19 health disparities, healthcare organizations across the nation strive to create diverse, equitable and inclusive environments for their patients, providers and administrative staff. To address the disparate populations impacted by the lack of health equity, solutions must start within the leadership of healthcare organizations. Healthcare organizations will need adequate tools and strategies to manage their investments in health equity, and leaders must prioritize making investments that increase health equity within the healthcare system and community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the use of health equity management as a business practice to create success in implementing health equity initiatives.
  • Identify successful tools and strategies for advancing health equity through the design of an operational health equity management plan for healthcare organization leaders.
