EmpiRx Health to Sponsor Techquity to Advance the Implementation of Equitable Technology in Healthcare

The National Techquity Research Initiative seeks to address the inequities exacerbated by the digital divide, which threatens to further widen the gap between vulnerable populations and their ability to engage with the healthcare system.

EmpiRx Health, the industry’s only value-based pharmacy benefits manager (PBM), is proud to announce its participation in the National Techquity Research Initiative. The initiative represents a collaboration between the HLTH Foundation, Ipsos, and industry leaders focused on equitable health technology. It aims to benchmark progress on achieving technology-related health equity (“techquity”) in the U.S. healthcare system and facilitate adoption of industry guidelines and best practices for equitable technology design and distribution. Participation in the initiative provides EmpiRx Health the opportunity to take meaningful action to address the inequities exacerbated by the digital divide, which threatens to further widen the gap between underserved, vulnerable, and marginalized populations and their ability to engage with the healthcare system.

“The time is now for advancing health equity through the lens of technology,” said EmpiRx Health CEO Karthik Ganesh. “The pandemic exposed the cracks in our healthcare system, sounding the alarm on the need to prioritize health equity. EmpiRx Health is unwavering in our focus on leveraging new technologies and utilizing tailored population health management to care for patients equitably and proactively. We are excited to partner with the HLTH Foundation and Ipsos on this vital initiative to further underscore health equity in the broader healthcare conversation.”

As part of the Techquity initiative, industry sponsors, providers, and advocates will guide development of two national surveys and secondary research that will result in definitions of best practices, measures, and a techquity roadmap for healthcare organizations to build solutions that further equity, inclusion, affordability, access, and innovation in healthcare delivery. These values are core to EmpiRx Health’s mission as an industry leader committed to translating a diverse and equitable workplace into better healthcare and health equity across the industry.
