  • Patient safety depends on health equity

    Patient safety is inextricably dependent on health equity, as language barriers, care access problems and social drivers of health can all undermine safety, says Dr. Linda Fan, an assistant professor at Yale Medicine. Health equity in patient safety can be approached through disparity indexes and by including equity elements in evaluations of sentinel events, Fan says, and health systems should develop a four-step, systemwide process for visualizing equity data and safety measures, says Dr. Lou Hart, medical director of health equity at Yale New Haven Health.
