In this final part of a six-part series, most are neutral-to-negative on chance of meaningful change.
The vast majority (72%) of the respondents to our State of the Industry reader survey indicated that they believed that their organization had taken meaningful steps to address healthcare disparities and racism this year.
But there was less confidence when the respondents were asked about whether the 2020 focus on healthcare disparities and racism will result in meaningful change. Almost half (49%) were neutral, and 21% had low confidence about meaningful change and 14% had very low confidence. The proportion of respondents who were confident that meaningful change would occur was quite low: 15% rated their confidence in meaningful change as high and 2% rated it as very high.
