The Health Care Equity Program (HCEP)

The Heath Care Equity Program (HCEP) of the HCHDS seeks to understand and reduce disparities in health care utilization within health plans. Specifically, HCEP’s primary aim is to assist health plans and employers in identifying, understanding and reducing disparities in health care utilization and health outcomes among their enrollees or employees. HCEP seeks to partner with health plans and employer groups to develop interventions to ensure all their enrollees or employees receive the highest quality health care. To meet this objective, the HCEP will perform analyses of health plans' administrative data and conduct surveys of their enrollees and providers to identify and understand the underlying causes of observed disparities.The HCEP will then develop and implement interventions that are specifically designed for the partnering health plan or employer group.
