Advancing Health Equity: A Data-Driven Approach Closes the Gap Between Intent and Action

Improving health equity is gaining traction as a healthcare delivery imperative. Yet, while equity is indivisible from healthcare quality, many initiatives targeting disparities fall short. Organizations too often rely solely on leader and stakeholder passion and perseverance without sufficiently leveraging data and analytics to understand, measure, and support equity improvement efforts. It’s time for the industry to pursue equitable care with the same resources it uses in other key dimensions, such as safety and efficacy—by leveraging data. A data-driven approach to equity opens health system’s most advanced predictive resources to equity efforts, thereby driving massive, measurable, data-informed improvement that benefits all.

Success Story
Using Data Science for Effective COVID-19 Capacity Planning

COVID-19 is causing many hospitals and health systems to face resource and capacity restrictions, making the accurate estimation of COVID-19 requirements crucial. Carle Health needed the ability to anticipate the impact COVID-19 would have on its organization and community. After analyzing national COVID-19 capacity planning resources, Carle chose a model that was customized for its organization. Carle leveraged its analytics platform, using local data and infection rates to forecast the impact of COVID-19 locally. The organization now has critical insight into when surges will occur and can determine if it has enough available resources.

Understanding Population Health Management: A Diabetes Example

Managing individual cases of diabetes require actively involving patients in their care plan, enabling each patient to monitor and understand key data, such as A1c readings, and adjust lifestyle or other factors affecting overall health. Managing diabetes across larger populations, however, is best done through the use of a data and analytics platform that can aggregate data from multiple sources and provide actionable insights. Specifically, a data platform can identify patients who aren’t up to date on tests and those at high risk for other complications, uncover variations in diabetes care across an organization, and more.

Success Story
AI Can Advance Health Equity

Health technology and augmented intelligence (AI) can significantly improve or worsen health equity. Recently, there has been a growing concern that AI is increasing disparity. ChristianaCare set a goal to reduce avoidable health disparities. The organization faced many challenges, including inconsistent collection, storage, and use of personal characteristics such as race, ethnicity, and language. Using its data platform and Healthcare.AI™, ChristianaCare now has a single “source of truth” for personal characteristics data. By treating health equity as a goal with the same commitment and focus as it would for other clinical, operational, or financial improvement efforts, the organization is purposefully using AI to achieve health equity.
