The American Hospital Association (AHA) has launched its Health Equity Roadmap, a resource to support hospitals and health systems.
The road map consists of three parts: an equity transformation assessment, a customized action plan and a virtual community of peers. The resource is meant to meet providers where they are in their equity journey, the organization said in a press release.
“The bottom line is this: Accelerating efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion is the right thing to do for patients, communities and organizations, and for the entire health care system,” said Rick Pollack, AHA president and CEO, in the announcement. “The Health Equity Roadmap is an important step as we strive to create a just society of healthy communities, where all individuals reach their highest potential for health.”
