Determinants of Health Dashboards

Health equity is at the core of a healthy population.

Reducing and overcoming the persistent health disparities and inequities within the community is mission imperative for hospitals.

HIDI’s Determinants of Health Dashboard Program is an affordable and unique solution to help hospitals gain a better understanding of their patient population and learn how social determinants of health impact outcomes in their communities.

Developed In Partnership

Developed in collaboration with quality and equity stakeholders from hospitals throughout Missouri, the new dashboards stratify hospital-specific administrative claims data into key sociodemographics, such as race, ethnicity, age and gender. The ability to analyze quality and safety data in this way provides hospitals with unprecedented visibility into the potential drivers of health care disparities, specific to their patient populations — a vantage point that’s critical when allocating finite resources for targeted improvements.
