The Blueprint for Health Equity and Inclusion, modeled after the Blueprint for Quality and Safety, guides the work of the Center for Health Equity Advancement and details three imperatives and associated priority action items centered on providing high quality, family-centered care to all patients regardless of personal characteristics.
Penn Medicine adopted the Blueprint in 2016 in an effort to chart our course towards achieving Health Equity.
- Value: Reduce Unnecessary Variations in Care by Personal Characteristics
- Engagement: Provide Patient and Family Centered, Culturally Effective Care
- Inclusion: Ensure a Diverse and Inclusive Clinical Learning and Work Environment
