The Center for Healthcare Innovation’s webinar will highlight the importance of ensuring healthcare providers are representative of United States demographics. Most qualitative studies suggest that BIPOC respondents prefer a provider of a similar “racial, ethnic and/or cultural background, and/or thought some diseases were better treated by a provider of the same racial, ethnic, and/or cultural background.” This conversation will underpin the importance of patient-clinician racial concordance as a way to improve communication, shared decision-making, patient comprehension, and overall health outcomes and quality.
