Health Disparities Calculator
The Health Disparities Calculator was developed by New Solutions, Inc. (a healthcare consulting firm, located in New Brunswick New Jersey, serving the Bergen-Passaic TGA Part A RWHAP Program) and adapted by the National Quality Center for the purpose of this Learning Exchange. A Disparity Guide is available to learn more the Disparities Calculator, how to use it and the underlying statistical models. The purpose is to help RWHAP recipients make meaningful decisions on which disparities to work on based on hard data and evidence. Guidance on analyzing disparities is based on the Supreme Court of the United States Disparate Impact Case Law, which has been developed over many years to address ongoing social justice issues within the US ranging from employment and housing discrimination to jury selection (SCOTUS Disparate Impact Case Law is the closest thing the scientific community has to agreement on how to approach questions of statistically evident disparities). There are five powerpoint presentations available to help you understand the statistics behind the Disparities Calculator and how to present the information to leaders in your organization. Finally, our community partners at Cuyahoga TGA produced an health disparities calculator data extractor to use in CAREWare.
