From the Illinois Health & Hospital Association-Achieving Health Equity. Working together, Illinois hospitals and health systems have the opportunity to dismantle systemic racism in a way that no individual organization can. The Progress Report aims to highlight the important progress that organizations have already made as well as the work ahead. Therefore, we urge every Illinois hospital and health system to complete the Progress Report.
The Racial Equity in Healthcare Progress Report (“Progress Report”) is a long-term accountability tool to document progress toward achieving racial health equity. It is meant to promote collective improvement, not to drive competition. It provides for a baseline self-assessment and then an opportunity to measure progress, assess their implementation of key strategies, understand provider and community assets in racial equity work, and identify areas of improvement.
