Where Healthcare Is Improving and Where It Needs More Work

While the public discourse on health equity has increased in recent years, there are still many problems in health disparities research and in care delivery. Health systems are struggling to tackle health equity issues as highlighted by a recent study that evaluated online consumer reviews of hospitals and experiences of racism. 

However, organizations are making a positive impact 
toward health equity in a variety of areas. Walmart is partnering with virtual care company Grand Rounds Health and Doctor On Demand on a digital health program aimed at tackling health disparities among African American workers. Women's health company Tia is looking to welcome female-identifying patients in an effort to improve inclusivity in health tech. For more content on companies that are addressing health equity gaps, including specialized care for women and individuals with female biologies, check out the recent blog post where we collaborated with Rock Health: Building comprehensive women+ digital health: Eight sectors serving women+ needs.
