Over the past few months Longwoods has been publishing a blog series about health equity with contributions from a range of health and health equity thought leaders.
In this week’s blog, the Wellesley Institute’s Steve Barnes reflects on what we heard at a recent roundtable that we hosted with the Equity MAgIC group to discuss how to use measurement to drive equity into action in health care. The blog identifies ten guiding themes and recommendations that came out of roundtable working groups, including the importance of having clear starting points, sharing the data that we have, and looking for opportunities to act.
The previous blog in this series was from long-time Wellesley collaborator Sanjeev Sridharan on the challenges in evaluating equity and other complex evaluations. Earlier in the series, the Wellesley Institute’s Bob Gardner blogged about setting out an overall health equity roadmap.
