Across the nation, an unprecedented focus is being placed on achieving the goal of health equity. This goal requires acquiring, aggregating, and analyzing data on social determinants of health to help identify and address the root causes of health disparities. During this webinar, experts from HMA and HealthEC provided a roadmap for how states, health plans, and providers can leverage data to support the design, development, and implementation of successful health equity initiatives.
- Understand why achieving health equity is an increasingly important goal for state Medicaid agencies, health plans and providers.
- Learn how racial inequality and social determinants of health contribute to inequities in health care access, outcomes, and status.
- Assess the readiness of states, health plans, and providers to address concerns over the impact of health equity on the morbidity and mortality or disadvantaged populations.
- Understand the role of analytics and population health management in identifying the causes of health disparities and building successful health equity initiatives.
