Many studies have been undertaken to better understand the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has also been noted that there remain serious racial and ethnic disparities related to the disease, its complications, and access to vaccines and healthcare. A recent study using data from a national insurer provides insight into these disparities and proposes possible solutions—including the important roles of healthcare payers.
According to HealthCore scientist April Falconi, “We hope the findings from these analyses illuminate the broader issue of racial and ethnic inequities in health and help advance long-overdue changes to create a better future for all. At HealthCore, we are committed to taking an evidence-based approach to inform strategies aimed at providing equitable care and driving optimal health outcomes for our communities.” Learn more here.
