Working Towards Health Equity
Start Date: February 13, 2014
End Date: February 13, 2014
WIHI is an exciting "talk show" program from IHI, originally envisioned by Don Berwick, MD, former President and CEO, Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).
During this broadcast participants will hear about progress that’s being made to reduce health disparities in ways that everyone can learn from. At HealthPartners, innovative and deliberate processes are dramatically closing gaps between white patients and patients of color undergoing breast and colorectal cancer screenings. Dr. Andrew Loehrer and colleagues are documenting powerful connections between insurance coverage and more equal access to certain surgeries. Yvonne Coghill and others at the NHS are demonstrating the critical need for a diverse workforce and, as important, making sure that diverse workforce is treated equitably and fairly. This, by any measure, helps ensure that all patients are treated fairly, too.
IHI’s Dr. Don Goldmann will join our conversation to talk about how we move from an era of mountains of crucial and valuable research documenting lack of equity and health care disparities, to one that is solutions-focused and anchored by cultural competency in word and deed. WIHI Host Madge Kaplan and all the guests invite you to be part of this important discussion.
