The National Quality Forum released a roadmap for healthcare stakeholders, which is designed to help them eliminate healthcare disparities.

The roadmap focuses on four actions:

●    Prioritizing measures that can help identify and monitor disparities
●    Implementing evidence-based interventions to reduce disparities
●    Investing in the development and use of measures to assess disparity-reducing interventions
●    Providing incentives to reduce disparities

The NQF developed the roadmap with input from nearly 24 public-and private-sector healthcare stakeholders, including payers, providers, consumers and patients. The organization will support stakeholders in implementing the aforementioned action steps through a new NQF Health Equity Program, said Shantanu Agrawal, MD, NQF's president and CEO. The program is set to launch in October.
