The Institute for Diversity in Health Management released its findings from the “Diversity and Disparities: A Benchmarking Study of U.S. Hospitals” and recognized high performing hospitals at its recent National Leadership and Education Conference in Nashville, Tenn.
The survey highlights that advancements are being made in key areas that can promote equitable care such as the collection of key demographic data, cultural competency training and the promotion of leadership diversity.
For Diversity Management and Strengthening the Workforce, IU Health’s University Hospital received “Best in Class” honors.
Selected hospitals were categorized and honored by diversity in leadership and governance, diversity management and strengthening the workforce, cultural competency and engaging communities and addressing disparities and delivering quality care. Each category was determined by the institute to be a key single component of an overall diversity promotion and disparities reduction strategy.
