Annotation

This webcast presents key findings from the Washington Health Alliance’s 2014 Disparities in Care Report that health care providers and their community partners can use to jointly address racial and ethnic disparities in health. Utilizing the report and its Medicaid claims analysis, health-related organizations can see how care is or is not provided and where opportunities for collaboration may exist.

Learning Objectives

• Increase understanding of health care data available through the Washington Health Alliance.

• Identify five key findings from the Washington Health Alliance’s 2014 Disparities in Care report.
