DIGITAL PERSPECTIVE | HEALTH EQUITY

It’s Time for an Upgrade Toward Equity

April 2021 | Bethany Vick

To drive true health equity, health organizations of all kinds must move beyond independent, preliminary actions. Rather, they must focus on systemic changes to the culture of our organizations, the way we do our work, and the products that are generated by that system. Actions must follow words. This is especially important for digital health organizations that have witnessed a dramatic acceleration in the shift to digital care due to COVID-19.

This research-based report outlines:

  1. How healthcare can learn from organizations like Nike, on how to deliver equitable products and experiences for consumers.
  2. How innovators and decision makers can develop the business case for investing in infrastructure and products that address the needs of underserved market segments.
  3. Key actions organizations can take to promote equitable health care within digital health initiatives.
