The Health IT Policy project is working with communities and health care providers to maximize the potential of technology to improve health and eliminate disparities. The TCC is looking for organizations, institutions and individuals that are leveraging Health IT to achieve health equity as partners in its initiatives. Examples of potential partnerships include:
Health care providers and organizations, consumers and vendors that have prioritized the collection of expanded demographic data in electronic health records, including granular race and ethnicity subgroups, preferred language, disability/functional status, sexual orientation and/or gender identity;
Health care providers and consumers that have used telemedicine technologies to substitute for or supplement face-to-face encounters;
Health care providers and organizations that are engaging vulnerable patient populations in their health care using innovative strategies and techniques;
Health equity organizations and individuals that are disseminating evidence-based information to large audiences of consumers, physicians and health care providers, vendors, policymakers and academia;
Organizations, institutions and individuals that support the mission to leverage health IT to eliminate health disparities.
