STRUCTURAL EQUITY PLAN
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Mass General Brigham (MGB) have launched several strategic initiatives to address structural inequities in our healthcare system, including the Mass General Structural Equity 10-Point Plan and the MGB United Against Racism initiative.
INITIATIVE 4: EQUITY IN ACCESS TO AND DELIVERY OF CLINICAL CARE
As key partners in this work, the Disparities Solutions Center and the Edward P. Lawrence Center for Quality and Safety are leading implementation of Initiative 4 of the 10-point plan, "Assure Equity in Access to and Delivery of Clinical Care."
Efforts are underway to identify and eliminate disparities in all aspects of care, from the time patients arrive at the hospital, throughout their stay, and when they return home. We are expanding our current work to identify and address disparities in quality of care at Mass General through our Annual Report on Equity in Health Care Quality, as well as innovation grants to support quality improvement projects that address disparities.
