Covered California shares in-depth information and early learnings about its health equity efforts.
As part of its core strategy, Covered California is using its data to learn about its population and implement initiatives aimed at reducing disparities, while overcoming challenges in gaining access to data to understand the problem. Taylor Priestley, Health Equity Officer, and Doug McKeever, Chief Deputy Executive Director, discuss the steps their organization has taken to drill down into their data to identify where health care disparities are occurring. In addition, Covered California made a call to action for other employer-purchasers to align on the quality measures they’re using to track progress toward eliminating health disparities. If you have additional questions and/or would like to learn how to partner, let us know!
