Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategy

Dr. Ramas, Medrizon Consulting, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategies

Healthcare organizations have a growing responsibility to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts for patients and their families and the organization’s employees,

  • Diversity: Understanding the background of employees and patients being served, including culture, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. Also, hiring and retaining a workforce that is representative of the patient population served.
  • Equity: Ensuring healthcare workers have what they need to do their jobs and patients have what they need in and out of treatment settings to effectively benefit from best practices in treatment (not to be confused with equality).
  • Inclusion: Giving employees and patients a voice to help provide and receive high-quality care and encouraging the presence of a diverse healthcare staff in the treatment experience of patients.

By working with Medrizon Consulting, healthcare organizations have a unique opportunity to improve the lives of those providing and receiving care. Given that this is such an important responsibility, it can be difficult to know where to begin.
