The healthcare industry has always been a critical component of society, providing people access to essential medical services. Recent years have seen significant progress in the healthcare industry’s innovation and best practices around health equity, ensuring that everyone, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status, receives the care they need.
One organization leading the charge for health equity is the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). PCORI is an independent, nonprofit organization that funds research to help patients and their families make informed decisions about their healthcare. Their focus on patient-centered outcomes research has led to significant healthcare equity advancements, including improved healthcare access for underserved populations.
“Community-based organizations bring deep knowledge of residents’ lived experience as well as needs and factors that affect their health, access to care, and ability to take advantage of available care options,” Cook said. “This knowledge and experience are crucial to designing and conducting studies with greater chances of success to improve maternal outcomes and help move us toward a health system that eliminates inequities for all.” [Source: PCORI]
