Addressing Health Inequity

In this recorded plenary presentation at the 2021 Health Datapalooza and National Health Policy Conference, panelists discuss the pressing issue of health inequity.

André Blackman moderates this discussion on health inequity with panelists Ivor Horn, M.D., M.P.H., Toyin Ajayi, M.D., M.Phil., and Lauren Powell, M.P.A, Ph.D. Panelists highlighted the need to identify relevant tools for solutions to health inequities. While data is an important aspect of those tools, panelists agree that equity must be a guiding principle when it comes to data collection, analysis, and reporting. The panel also agrees that a focus on the systemic nature of inequity is critical, emphasizing the importance of building trust between health care providers and patients.
