For the 76th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re talking about Health Equity. This is one of the most important topics we’ve been talking about lately. COVID-19 definitely highlighted many of the inequities that exist in healthcare. In this episode, we dive into how we look at Health Equity and share some of the conversations we’ve heard about health equity at the conferences we’ve attended. We also talk about how the conversation has changed and evolved. Plus, we look at technologies impact on health equity for good and bad. Finally, we talk about how technology can be used to improve access or address inequities.

Here’s a preview of the questions we discuss in this episode:

  • What does Health Equity mean to you?
  • Where are you seeing Health Equity at events and how has that changed?
  • Where do you feel technology can help health equity the most?
  • Any tech that has impressed you in terms of improving access or addressing equity?

We want to give a shout out to two people who have been advocating for Health Equity: Abner Mason, @abnermason on twitter and Shereese Maynard, @ShereeseMayMBA on twitter. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed with the information & resources they are sharing.
