Over 20 years ago the Institute of Medicine included “equitable” as one of six domains of quality, but when we talk about equity and quality today, we don’t often discuss them in tandem. To reach health improvement goals, that must change. In this episode of the Business Group on Health Podcast, we speak with Dr. Mark Smith, professor of clinical medicine at the University of California at San Francisco and founding president and CEO of the California Healthcare Foundation. Mark shares why it’s critical to view quality through an equity lens and the importance of setting specific and time-driven targets; his thoughts on the rapidly changing dynamics of health care delivery and if virtual care can bridge the equity gap; and why he’s hopeful for the future.

Guest: Mark Smith, MD Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of California San Francisco
