Improving health outcomes by closing health equity gaps begins with access to quality care providers. That’s why Health Net has invested nearly $4 million to upskill practitioners and bring new providers into the Medi-Cal system. But, there’s much more to health equity.
We employ an award-winning model to detect, assess and reduce health disparities. It begins with our clinical and data analyst teams studying quantitative and qualitative data to identify barriers to care. We then work with our providers and community based organizations to design local interventions. We do this through a multi-pronged approach that addresses:
- Social determinants of health
- Disability-adapted services
- Workforce development issues
- Encounter data analysis
- Telehealth services
- Housing security
- Language and interpreter services
- Cultural competency training
- Community-based partnerships
- Local investments and more
Health Net has compiled new strategies and lessons that can be applied across California’s healthcare system to reduce health disparities. Read our Health Equity Key Findings Report by clicking here.
