Why It’s Important
Everyone deserves the opportunity to live the healthiest life possible.
We want to learn more about our members and determine which inequities exist for those we provide care for. We’re committed to making necessary changes to ensure everyone has a fair shot at living the healthiest life possible.
We want to ensure that care is equitable and individualized for all members, regardless of race, ethnicity, preferred language, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Demographic information has the power to reveal trends and help us identify whether changes need to be made in the way we provide access and treatment. All in all, this can lead to improved health outcomes for our diverse members.
Inequities exist when it comes to health care; your information will help us better identify those inequities.
Health gaps make it difficult for people in some populations to receive the care they need and deserve. Over time, this leads to poor health outcomes such as higher rates of chronic disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancers. By collecting demographic information, we can work to eliminate health disparities among our members.
