The Heart of the Matter: Leveraging Our Electronic Health Record to Address Health Inequities
Heather J Busick, MS, MD, Physician, and Associate Chief Medical Information Officer, URMC
The URMC Equity and Anti-Racism Action Plan outlines a vision that includes the delivery of equitable health care to our community. The Health Equity and Anti-Racism Technology (HEART) Program team heard the call and endeavors to implement and operationalize the electronic health record tools needed to achieve this goal. Through an improved collection of data in the areas of demographics and social determinants of health (SDoH), we will be able to better understand our patients, their needs, and our performance in their care. This presentation will highlight how collecting and displaying SDoH data will help us continue connecting our patients to needed resources both within and outside URMC's walls.
