We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 8/28 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Corinne Stroum (@healthcora) on the topic of “Health Equity: The Missing Aim“.
As #COVID19 spread throughout the US, significant disparity in spread and outcomes became apparent across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines. #HealthEquity, which the IHI calls the Forgotten Aim, has been thrust into the forefront of public health. We hope you’ll join us to discuss how to tackle the challenges of #healthcare diagnostic and treatment disparity and what we can all do to improve the situation with #HITsm this week.
Join us for this week’s HITsm chat, as we discuss health equity.
