Resources to support diverse patients and communities
We’ve heard it all our lives: To be fair, you should treat everybody the same. But the challenge is that everybody is not the same – and these differences can lead to critical disparities not only in how patients access health care, but their outcomes as well. The current health crisis illuminates this quite clearly. It is imperative to offer care that is tailored to the unique needs of patients, and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is committed to supporting our providers in this effort.
MyDiversePatients.com offers education resources to help you support the needs of your diverse patients and address disparities, including:
- Free Continuing Medical Education (CME) learning experiences about disparities, potential contributing factors and opportunities for providers to enhance care.
- Real life stories about diverse patients and the unique challenges they face.
- Tips and techniques for working with diverse patients to promote improvement in health outcomes.
Stronger Together offers free resources to support the diverse health needs of all people where they live, learn, work and play. These resources were created by our parent company in collaboration with national organizations and are available for you to share with your patients and communities.
While there is no single easy answer to the issue of health care disparities, the vision of MyDiversePatients.com and Stronger Together is to start reversing these trends…one person at a time.
Embrace the knowledge, skills, ideals, strategies, and techniques to accelerate your journey to becoming your patients’ trusted health care partner by visiting these resources today.
