Utilizing Health-Related Patient Data to Advance Health Equity in Clinical Care

Hennepin County Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) located in the upper Midwest. The health center’s patient population faces some of the greatest disparities in health within the community. Over the past two years, HCH has worked to improve how clinical quality data and patient health measures are collected, reported, and addressed. These efforts focus on grounding the collection and utilization of patient health data in health and racial equity, along with improving health and the healthcare experience for HCH patients. This session will include examples of data in action to promote equitable health care outcomes. Discussion in small groups will focus on how others have used data to examine and measure health and racial equity to improve health care.
