ICH is providing support to the Health Equity Task Force at Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), which aims to develop a strategy to advance health equity and prepare for the 2023-2027 MA Medicaid Waiver Program. ICH is providing technical assistance to CHA in several areas, including compiling literature on evidence-based health equity interventions and approaches at other health systems, interviews and/or focus groups with key stakeholders, and supporting development of quantitative metrics and analysis. Through this work, CHA’s Health Equity Task Force aims to generate innovative approaches to health equity at CHA, with the goal of reducing disparities for patients and promoting a workplace culture that honors diversity and inclusion at all levels, as well as cultivating evidence-based practices toward more equitable healthcare.
