A Collaborative Partnership Model to Address Health Equity

We have seen firsthand the effects social determinants of health have on healthcare access, healthcare quality, and affordability manifesting as social and financial need gaps to insurance and safety net programs designed to help patients avoid financial devastation and poor health outcomes. The PAF Patient Partner for Equity program serves to amplify the impact non-profit patient advocacy organizations collectively have in the lives of patients and communities who continue to experience healthcare inequities, facilitating opportunities to attain the highest level of health, while producing data and patient stories that enable advocacy and policy activities to address social needs gaps.
