Benchmarking Survey on Hospital Efforts to Reduce Health Disparities Underway
September 21, 2015
The Institute for Diversity in Health Management and the Health Research & Educational Trust have mailed hospital CEOs the 2015 edition of "Diversity and Disparities: A Benchmark Study of U.S. Hospitals" to learn more about hospitals’ ongoing efforts to address health care disparities and improve diversity management practices. All hospitals are encouraged to complete the survey. Those that do will receive a summary of the findings and, if requested from the Institute, a customized performance benchmarking report. For more information, contact Tomás León at (312) 422-2630 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More than 700 hospitals have signed onto the AHA’s #123forEquity Pledge to Act Campaign to eliminate health care disparities and a number of partner organizations have endorsed the campaign, announced at the Health Forum-AHA Leadership Summit in July. For more on the campaign, visit www.equityofcare.org. The Institute and HRET are AHA affiliates.
