The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines health equity as the state where everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible. To achieve health equity, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) must identify and address social determinants of health and health barriers facing their patient populations.
With the Equity Equalizer™ Platform, ACOs across the United States use data from feature-rich sources to more effectively identify and address health equity barriers among its patient populations. Lessons learned will help more ACO leaders pinpoint local health challenges and close gaps in care.
If you knew people living in one neighborhood with food swamps tend to be 42% more expensive than those living in a neighborhood that isn’t, what kinds of questions would you ask?
Local data on social, economic, and health factors can help ACO executives illuminate approaches to such challenges and drive change.
We heard from ACO leaders that there needed to be more data at the city and neighborhood level clearly showing which factors significantly influence their patient’s health and well-being. So we got to work and created the Equity Equalizer™ Platform. Launched in 2019, the platform integrates CCLF files and city- and neighborhood-level data from multiple national sources, providing measures that address health, such as food swamps, transportation, language barriers, obesity rates, and life expectancy, and conditions that shape health, such as child poverty, unemployment, and residential segregation.
