Everyone deserves equal rights and opportunities - this includes the right to better health.
Social justice fights for the truth that every person, regardless of race, gender, or creed, deserves equal rights and opportunities in life. This includes the right to quality healthcare.
Yet today, there are inequities in health that are avoidable, unnecessary and unjust. These inequities are the result of policies and practices that have created an unequal distribution of money, power and resources among communities based on race, class, gender, location and more. These factors are called the social determinants of health, and its Healthstat's goal to limit the inequities that arise from these determinants wherever possible.
More than 30 percent of direct medical costs faced by African-Americans, Hispanics and Asian-Americans can be tied to health inequities. Because of unequal access to care and other health-promoting resources, these populations are often sicker when they do find a source of care and as a result incur higher medical costs. That 30 percent translates to more than $230 billion over a four-year period. In addition, studies have shown that clinicians tend to have more negative attitudes toward people of color, and unconscious racial bias among clinicians has been shown to lead to poorer communication and lower quality of care.
“To us, social justice in health means pairing the social determinants of health with actionable efforts to advance equity, to ensure everyone has the opportunity to attain their highest level of health,” said Crockett Dale, CEO of Healthstat.
Healthstat's Social Justice in Health initiative aims to advance equity for patients, employees and surrounding communities. The initiative is built on three pillars: Social Determinants of Health (SDoH); Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I); and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risk. Through SDoH we can unlock the doors to patient success and improve outcomes.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, or DE&I as it is commonly referred, is a phrase that broadly outlines the efforts an organization takes to create a more welcoming environment for people of less-privileged identities. We aim to create meaningful, systematic change toward more equitable environments for all Healthstat employees and health center participants.
We integrate social and environmental concerns in our business operations and interactions with our stakeholders. We aim to contribute to societal goals through Healthstat's corporate vision by giving back to the communities in which we serve. We believe that holistic health comes from individuals who are informed, supported, and cared for.
