Demonstrating variations of health and healthcare across state regions

Room 2 (Salon G/M)
Within the State of Texas, great variations exist in key health metrics such as health status, cost, price, utilization, access and quality. Variances by geographic region are evident, as are discrepancies among payor populations such as Medicare, Medicaid and Commercial.

Visual demonstration of such variations prompts key stakeholders to question the contributors of such inequities. In this session, we will review our recent project which created a publicly available website to report and display vital information, resulting in statewide partnerships and opportunities to support health equity initiatives and the need to incorporate social determinants of health information.
