Heading Towards Health Equity: Time for a Do Over

In this keynote, Dr. Olayiwola, Chair and Professor of the Department of Family and Community Medicine and Founding Director of the Center for Primary Care Innovation and Transformation at the Ohio State University College  of Medicine, will shed light on growing and staggering health disparities across the nation. With the upheaval of social, economic, education and health care structures during the global pandemic, we must find a way to achieve health equity. Drawing on recent successes at her institution in fostering anti-racism action as a vehicle towards health equity, Dr. Olayiwola will share why we need a “do over” in health care and provide comprehensive strategies towards achieving health equity.


Why Report-Out

During this session, the co-leads will share the results from interviews with funders about their funding priorities, impressions of our Roadmap to Health Equity initiative, and advice for attracting funding.

What Report-Out

During this session, the co-leads and work group leads from the What Committee will share the work the What Committee focused on this year, including exploring the social determinants of health, beginning to measure the impact of COVID-19 and identifying a promising tool to measure/ capture patient voice.

How Report-Out

During this session, the co-leads and members of the VTOC Implementation Team will share the status of the data repository build-out and provide a demonstration of the platform.

Steering Report-Out

During this session, the co-chairs will discuss the Roadmap to Health Equity 3-Year Strategic Planning process, and present a Starter Set Policy for consideration.


IHI Pursuing Equity Panel

During this session, participants will hear from a panel of the four clinics that were selected to participate in the Institute for Health Care Improvement (IHI) Pursuing Equity Learning and Action Network. The Pursuing Equity initiative is an 18-month journey on the path to achieving health equity by intentionally working on IHI’s 5-step framework: 1) Make health equity a strategic priority, 2) Build infrastructure to support health equity, 3) Address the multiple determinants of health, 4) Eliminate racism and other forms of oppression, and 5) Partner with the community to improve health equity. The speakers will provide a brief overview of the initiative and its connection to Roadmap, and the clinics will reflect on their journey in the “getting grounded” phase of the work; they will share tools and resources for laying the foundation of this important work with attendees.

Quality Improvement Session

Roadmap is laying the foundation for collecting, reporting, and evaluating data on quality measures. This session will explore quality improvement framework and methodology for how to use that data and science-based strategies to begin to make improvements in care. Participants will hear from Rashad Massoud, MD, MPH, FACP, Senior Vice President and Chief Program Officer at Americares and quality expert on QI framework and methodology and from Emily Hendel, MS, NP-C, Director of Clinical Services at CommunityHealth, who will share an example of an improvement project conducted at their clinic.
