Using Data and Information Systems in Partnered Research

Leveraging VA Data and Partnerships to Advance Equity-Guided Improvement: Introducing the Primary Care Equity Dashboard


by John Cashy, PhD ; Leslie Hausmann, PhD ; Ernest Moy, MD, MPH
Seminar date: 2/16/2021

Description: This presentation will provide an introduction to the Primary Care Equity Dashboard, a multi-faceted tool developed in partnership with the VA Office of Health Equity and clinical staff to integrate equity into quality improvement activities in VA primary care settings. Researchers leading the development of the tool will 1) describe the user-centered process by which the tool was designed, 2) demonstrate the tool’s main features, and 3) explain how data from multiple sources are acquired, compiled, updated, and displayed in user-facing reports. The operations partner will then describe how this work helps lay the groundwork for the VA to adopt a national Equity Guided Improvement Strategy. Presenters will also reflect on the importance of having strong research-operations partnerships to spread a culture of equity throughout the VA.
