 Grand Rounds Live Webinar Series:
What Does Value Mean in Health Equity
Wednesday, June 12, 2024
12:00 - 12:45 PM EST 


Sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

This presentation will address the question, What is the value proposition of health equity work?  In a context where there is heavy emphasis on the value derived from healthcare, remarks will focus on questions such as, What constitutes value?  Who gets to decide?  The assertion will be put forth that traditional ROI is an incomplete metric for assessing the value derived from health equity investments and that relying on traditional approaches, which focus on direct short-term financial returns, to make decisions about investments in health equity risks underinvestment in interventions that have the potential to produce sustainable improvements in health, close disparity gaps, and enhance the long-term financial condition of healthcare institutions.
