Health care organizations are increasingly exploring ways to partner with patients and communities of color to reduce health disparities and advance health equity. Meaningful patient engagement can help health care organizations build trust within communities, improve their understanding of cultural preferences and needs in the community, and inform organizational policies and practices.
This Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) webinar will highlight how two New York-based health care organizations — John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and The New York Foundling — are engaging patients in new ways to transform their health care delivery practices. Lessons from these efforts can inform health care organizations across the country seeking to involve patients, particularly patients of color, in efforts to advance health equity. These organizations are participants in Engaging Patients of Color to Advance Health Equity, a CHCS learning collaborative supported by the New York Health Foundation.
Health care organizations, community-based organizations, patients and patient advocates, and other interested stakeholders are invited to join this 60-minute event.
