Health Equity Data Strategy

HCIF’s Health Equity Data Strategy (HEDS) is a multi-year collaborative, composed of PPC member organizations who will work together to decrease disparities in health outcomes within their respective communities. The first year will focus on the collection and analysis of REaL (race, ethnicity, and language) data among patient populations. Participation in this collaborative will leave organizations better equipped to identify and address disparities in their healthcare treatment through the leveraging of REaL data. As a participant, organizations will learn from local and national experts; share strategies, best practices, and resources with other equity improvement teams at collaborative workshop sessions; complete a baseline survey regarding current data practices; and develop a sustainable health equity data strategy that consists of an organization’s priorities, processes, and parameters for collection and use of patient data to advance health equity.
