Everyone deserves to receive the best possible health care.
Unfortunately, the reality is that many populations experience health care disparities. It’s IHA’s goal to change that. In 2015, the IHA Board adopted a resolution encouraging all Indiana hospitals to participate in the American Hospital Association’s #123forEquity Pledge, and has signed the pledge as an official demonstration of support. The pledge outlines action items for hospitals, including a data analysis component, intended to eliminate health care disparities and help all patients achieve their highest potential for health.
Several Indiana hospitals have already made the commitment.
To encourage hospitals and educate everyone on the importance of equity, IHA hosted "Embracing Equity: It's Easy as 1, 2, 3!" webinar. Download the slides from the webinar. Stream an audio recording of the webinar.
