Are Personal or Systemic Biases Limiting Progress in Solving Health Disparities?

A Discussion with Ron Wyatt, MD

Eliminating disparities is one of the most critical and ethical imperatives of healthcare today. But according to patient safety and health equity champion Ron Wyatt, MD, founder and CEO of Achieving Health Equity, trust and humility, as well as the fear of uncovering personal or systemic biases, can limit progress. What are ways that telehealth can move the path forward? What can be done as an “impatient optimist” to make care better for all? During this episode, Ron addresses these critical questions and emphasizes the importance of understanding history, examining evidence, and using training as part of a newly developed framework created by the ATA’s Advisory Group to Eliminate Disparities and Inequities, of which he is co-chair.
