1 Credit CME

Ensuring Equity in Innovation is a strategic approach defined in the AMA's Strategic Plan to Embed Equity and Advance Racial Justice. Through this approach, the AMA has committed to ensuring equitable opportunities and structures in health innovation for historically marginalized and minoritized communities.

This session will provide an update on this strategic approach by engaging our physician membership on the In Full Health initiative that the AMA Center for Health Equity, in partnership with a group of external advisors with expertise at the intersection of health equity and innovation and founding collaborator organizations, launched in March. As part of the In Full Health initiative, we published a business case, a set of principles, and a new learning and action community to advance equitable health innovation.

For members who are engaged in the selection, implementation, and/or evaluation processes for solutions within their health care system, or who are involved or interested in getting involved in the health innovation space, this session will provide tactical frameworks and action steps they can apply and take into their work.

This session will focus on the following:

  • In Full Health: Principles for Equitable Health Innovation and Learning & Action Community: The Principles for Equitable Health Innovation, created in collaboration with our External Advisory Group is a framework that seeks to enable a shared understanding of, and common language around, the current state and drivers of inequities in health innovation, an ideal future state, and metrics of progress. It is also the foundation connecting a community of health industry stakeholders seeking to learn about and advance equity within their innovation efforts. The principles propose a shared vision of the health outcomes we can achieve across this nation if organizations shift resources and decision-making power to investors and innovators from marginalized communities creating solutions that advance health, racial, and social justice, as well as create and implement solution development and evaluation processes that center the needs of marginalized patients and clinicians serving marginalized communities.

  • Co-developed Education Module Series: Centering Equity in Health Tech Solutions: UCSF SOLVE Health Tech and AMA are co-developing 3 educational modules on “Centering Equity in Health Tech Solutions” that introduces fundamental concepts and frameworks to equip physicians and health system team members to embed equity into health tech solution design, implementation, and evaluation. The modules will be published on the Health Equity Education Center on the AMA Ed Hub for CME credit.
