June 19, 2014
The latest results from "Diversity and Disparities: A Benchmarking Survey of U.S. Hospitals, are now available for download.
In 2013, the Institute commissioned the Health Research & Educational Trust of the AHA to conduct a national survey of hospitals to determine actions that hospitals are taking to in these areas. The survey results highlight that, while more work needs to be done, some progress is being made in key areas that can promote equitable care, such as collecting demographic data, providing cultural competency training and increasing diversity in leadership and governance. The overview provides data to help the health care field focus attention on areas that will have the most impact and establish a benchmark to gauge progress.
