New Toolkits Address Equity of Care

05/19/2017

 

 

To assure each individual receives the highest level of care possible, the American Hospital Association and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have launched nationwide toolkits to address equity of care.

AHA last year launched the #123forEquity Pledge to Eliminate Health Care Disparities.

The pledge campaign urges hospital and health system leaders to take action in the next 12 months on specific areas that can improve health equity; provide updates on their organization’s progress; and share their success in promoting diversity and health equity with the public.

“The Guide to Preventing Readmissions among Racially and Ethnically Diverse Medicare Beneficiaries” was prepared the CMS Office of Minority Health. The guide can be downloaded here.
