Patient Safety Tool: Guide to Creating Equity Reports

The Disparities Solutions Center at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston offers a free guide for hospitals to create equity reports.

The guide, developed with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, provides information on how to prepare equity reports that identify ethnic and racial disparities in the hospital and suggest solutions. The guide includes tips on collecting, measuring and preparing equity data and using the report to reduce inequalities. In addition, the document provides case studies of hospitals that have collected ethnicity and racial data to evaluate quality of care.
