The Role Diversity and Inclusion Plays in Achieving Strategic Goals

An independent HealthLeaders Media report supported by

Savvy healthcare leaders recognize that diversity and inclusion is more than something “nice” to do; rather, it is essential to meeting an organization’s strategic goals as healthcare transitions to a value-based, patient-centered system that ties reimbursement to patient experience, population health, and patient outcomes.

To achieve these goals, healthcare organizations must develop a diverse and inclusive workforce and patient base to reflect the racial, ethnic, and cultural demographics of a community. They must also understand the unique needs of healthcare consumers in order to deliver equitable care.

In this HealthLeaders Media Roundtable, the panel discussed ideas, insights, and strategies on how a commitment to diversity and inclusion can translate into equitable care that positively influences clinical and financial outcomes, patient experience, and models of healthcare delivery.
