Health Equity

Connecticut Office of the Lieutenant Governor

2017 - $120,000

Connecticut’s health information technology officer, Allan Hackney, has been tasked with creating a “data architecture” for a statewide health information exchange, which is intended to improve the collection, analysis, and reporting of health care data. This grant will support a pilot project focused on how to effectively collect data that is significant to addressing health equity issues. Collecting data on race, ethnicity, and language preference of patients is critical to holding the health care system accountable for outcomes.
