Illinois Health and Hospital Association released the Racial Equity in Healthcare Progress Report (Progress Report) which serves as a long-term accountability tool to document progress toward achieving racial health equity. The Progress Report, a baseline self-assessment, is an opportunity to measure a hospital’s progress, understand provider and community assets in racial equity work, and outline areas of improvement for individual providers and the larger provider ecosystem. This tool aims to highlight the important progress that providers have already made and the work ahead. To date, more than 25 healthcare providers across the state have completed the Progress Report during two separate pilot phases.
