Advancing Digital Health Equity in California

Advancing Digital Health Equity in California

February 24, 2021

Digital health solutions, including telehealth, text-message and app-based health interventions have the potential to barriers to accessing care and improve health outcomes. On March 9th, from 12-1pm, Cal-IHEA convened an expert panel to discuss their research focused on expanding digital health solutions for low-income Californians during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Panelists discussed the policy implications of their research on improving digital health equity, workforce development, and tailoring and disseminating digital health interventions for Black and Latinx Californians who have suffered disproportionately from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This briefing is hosted by The California Initiative for Health Equity & Action, with financial support from the Blue Shield of California Foundation.
