Leveraging Data to Improve Health Equity

Work Group Charter

Disparities in care exist throughout the healthcare system, but many PPL organizations have not segmented their own health outcomes data by race and socioeconomic class so as to analyze the specific situations in which those disparities are occurring among their patients or members. Until they do so, they will not be able to understand the breadth and depth of the disparities or to develop strategies to address those disparities at the patient or population level. The goal of this Work Group is to enable payer, provider and life science CEOs to identify racial/ethnic disparities and manage the impact of prevention and clinical care on outcomes
