For decades, disparities in healthcare have been well documented in the U.S. and regrettably, remain prevalent despite evidence and appeals for their elimination. Compared to the majority, racial and ethnic minorities continue to have poorer health status and health outcomes for most chronic conditions. Many factors, such as affordability, accessibility and diversity in the healthcare system influence care and outcomes, creating challenges that make the task of eliminating health disparities and achieving health equity daunting and elusive. Novel strategies are needed to bring about much needed change to the complex and evolving healthcare system.
Over the past several decades, diversity in the U.S. population has increased significantly and is expected to increase exponentially in the near future. As the population becomes more diverse, it is important to recognize the possibilities of new and emerging disparities. It is imperative that steps are taken to eliminate the current gap in care and prevent new disparities from developing. This conference will present challenges and offer recommendations for facilitating the process of eliminating health disparities and achieving health equity across diverse populations. Topics to be discussed will include launching a health equity strategy, social determinants of health, digital health equity, community partnerships, population health management strategies, the healthcare supply chain, policy and more.

All organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they get. Healthcare providers and payers are on the journey to pursuing equity in all they do by increasing their focus on the root causes of inequities. Purchasers are rethinking how they contract for care, seeking health plan distinctions that offer equitable access and quality of care. Taking action on advancing health equity is important for both better health outcomes and thriving communities. Discuss the pros and cons of pursuing health equity independently and via the accreditation process. Hear about the common challenges and potential solutions around data collection and management, trust, and leadership buy-in. Learn how accreditation can help align health plans and clinical care organizations around common health equity goals.
Differences in access across member populations contribute to disparities in health care and overall health and well-being. The traditional health care model has resulted in up to 82% of adults not receiving important preventive care such as cancer screenings and vaccinations. There is an opportunity for at-home testing to reshape the health care experience and address barriers to health care access such as location, transportation, education, and income. This webinar will explore the barriers impacting member access and how at-home testing programs can help close the gaps. A member of LetsGetChecked’s Partnership team will share how our at-home testing solutions enable more equitable healthcare access by meeting members where they are, and a LetsGetChecked client will share their experience leveraging an at-home screening program to help members overcome barriers to accessing important preventative care.
