Laderman M, Whittington J. A framework for improving health equity. Healthcare Executive. 2016 May;31(3):82-85.
While communitywide efforts and coalitions are key to achieving health equity, health care organizations and systems have tremendous potential to directly influence numerous underlying societal inequities that contribute to health disparities and poor health. This article presents an overview of a framework developed by IHI to help guide leaders in improving health equity by making it a system-level priority for their organizations.
[Note: The framework presented in this article is described in more detail in the IHI White Paper, Achieving Health Equiity: A Guide for Health Care Organizations.]
