The Disparities Solutions Center at Massachusetts General Hospital

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: June 4, 2009, 1:19 AM


The Disparities Solutions Center is dedicated to the development and implementation of strategies that advance policy and practice to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health care. The Disparities Solutions Center will achieve this mission by:

· Serving as a change agent by developing new research and translating innovative research findings into policy and practice
· Developing and evaluating customized policy and practice solutions for health care providers, insurers, educators, community organizations and other stakeholders
· Providing education and leadership training to expand the community of skilled individuals dedicated to eliminating health care disparities

The Disparities Solutions Center is the first center of its kind in the United States. While other disparities centers exist, The Disparities Solutions Center is the first to be based in a hospital, which supports its practical focus on moving the issue of disparities in health care beyond research and into the arenas of policy and practice.

The Center will serve as a national, regional, and local resource for hospitals, physician practices, community health centers, medical schools, other health professions schools, health plans and insurers, consumer organizations, and state and local governments.

Housed within the MGH Institute for Health Policy, the Center is affiliated with Harvard Medical School's Departments of Medicine and Health Care Policy and the MGH Division of General Medicine.
