Pennsylvania’s hospital community, representatives from government and commercial payors, and other health care stakeholders convened today to kick off HAP’s Racial Health Equity Learning Action Network (RHELAN).
The event builds on recent efforts from HAP and Pennsylvania hospitals to address racial inequities in care and to eliminate health disparities. The kickoff continues a long-term commitment to this vital work. Among the key takeaways from RHELAN’s first virtual session:
HAP thanks our members and our panelists from across the health care spectrum for taking part in this initiative for racial health equity. During October, HAP will host Racial Health Equity Action Day during the opening day of our signature Patient Safety, Quality, and Equity Symposium.
This event will be dedicated to addressing the imperative connection between health equity, patient harm, and patient safety.
