Chartis, a comprehensive healthcare advisory firm, today announced it has been selected as an inaugural Equity Transformation Partner (ETP) by the American Hospital Association (AHA). The AHA introduced the ETP program as an additional resource to support members’ equity transformation efforts.
The ETP program’s goal is to identify a group of trusted and vetted services to help AHA member hospitals and health systems accelerate their equity journey and the completion of the Institute for Health Equity & Diversity’s Health Equity Roadmap. The roadmap is a national initiative to drive improvement in healthcare outcomes, health equity, diversity, and inclusion. Selected organizations have an established hospital-health system client base and understand the complexities and opportunities of working in these environments.
“The Chartis Center for Health Equity & Belonging is elated to work alongside the American Hospital Association as an Equity Transformation Partner,” said Chartis Chief Health Equity Officer Duane Reynolds. “Both organizations are committed to making healthcare work better. Strong, innovative partnerships like this one enable us to make a significant impact across the industry and help achieve greater health equity for all.”
“We selected Chartis as one of our inaugural Equity Transformation Partners because of the strong alignment in our respective missions,” said Joy A. Lewis, Senior Vice President Health, Equity Strategies for AHA’s Institute for Diversity and Health Equity. “Chartis can help us move the needle. The firm is uniquely positioned to guide our member hospitals and health systems through developing their transformational initiatives that lead to more equitable outcomes.”
