AHEF 2021 Virtual Panel: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

AHEF 2021 Virtual Panel: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Arkansas Health Executives Forum Panel
1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face Hours Provided

The communities for which health care organizations operate are rapidly diversifying. Not only do they provide care for a diverse community of patients and families, but their workforce is also changing, and at times does not reflect the patient community. This diversity is exhibited in a number of ways, including ethnicity, race, religion, socioeconomic status, language, age, sexual orientation/gender identity, and physical ability.

The business implications and imperatives health care organizations face concerning diversity, equity, and inclusion are immense. Diverse communities often require different care needs, improved quality, new or modified operational processes and services, and strategic planning for a varied patient demographic. The continuum of care will need to be considered to best meet the needs of these communities.

It is incumbent on health care organizations and their leaders to both understand and embrace the needs of diverse populations. Leader’s abilities to respond to the needs and preferences of a broader customer base will be critical to their financial and operational success.
