Our Core Values
IMPACT Diverse Patient Outcomes
Compassion - Awareness - Relevance – Experience
Numerous studies have shown that increased provider diversity is associated with improved healthcare quality. Concordant care, defined as a patient and provider sharing a common attribute such as race, ethnicity, or gender, has been associated with improved quality of care
Managing change the Key to Transformation?
What We Do
With over 25 years of diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and healthcare experience as both administrative and healthcare provider, we understand the change management required to foster a culture of inclusivity and how to overcome internal barriers such as executive buy-in, infrastructure and process limitations both in policy and in the delivery of care. We’ve been there, and we know how to leverage our experience to develop customized solutions and help our clients build their roadmap.
We train the healthcare industry how to provide equitable healthcare to their diverse patient population.
We provide strategic culture audits, DEI assessments, implementation support, executive level coaching, and educational programs for both leadership and patient facing teams for organizations and teams of all sizes.
There are three emerging problems that lead to representation decline in healthcare: structural challenges (such as hiring and advancement practices), institutional barriers allowing underlying biases to persist, and impact of the daily work environment not promoting an inclusive and supportive experience for all stakeholders.
As our country’s cultural diversity continues to grow and evolve, there is a greater need to diversify our healthcare workforce and patient base.
