Mission

PrintThe DSC is dedicated to the development and implementation of strategies that advance policy and practice to improve quality, eliminate racial and ethnic disparities, and achieve equity in health care in a time of rapid transformation.

Specifically we are working to:

  • Create change by developing new research and translating the findings into policy and practice.
  • Find solutions that help health care leaders, organizations, and key stakeholders ensure that every patient receives high-value, high-quality health care.
  • Encourage leadership by expanding the community of health care professionals prepared to improve quality, address disparities and achieve equity.

Our goal is to move beyond research to action—by developing and disseminating models for improving quality and identifying and addressing racial and ethnic disparities in health care nationally, regionally, and locally. Through our work, we hope to move all healthcare stakeholders one step forward – and closer towards achieving equity in healthcare.
