  • Develops evidence-based tools and guides,

Equity of Care

Equity of Care

Equity of Care (EOC) is the national collaborative effort among the following groups:

  • America's Essential Hospitals
  • American College of Healthcare Executives
  • American Hospital Association
  • Association of American Medical Colleges
  • Catholic Health Association of the United States.

Through this platform, the AHA EOC Committee has issued a call to action to eliminate health care disparities.  The goals are to:

  • Increase the collection and use of race, ethnicity and language preference data
  • Increase cultural competency training for clinicians and support staff
  • Increase diversity in governance and management

Through free resources, shared best practices and national collaborative efforts, EOC hopes to lead the health field on a clear path to eliminate disparities and ensure that local action can affect national results.
