Moore & Van Allen (MVA) Health Care Member Keith Smith‘s article titled, “Social Inequities as Enterprise Risks for Health Care Organizations” was published by American Health Law Association’s (AHLA) Health Law Weekly on March 12.
How a health care organization responds to demands for corporate social justice may affect its ability to achieve performance goals. Racial, gender, and other inequities function as enterprise risks for health care organizations, with potential to have a negative impact on performance ranging from patient satisfaction to quality care measures. As health care organizations continue to manage the financial strain and logistical challenges of the pandemic, they also are pursuing strategic objectives designed to improve the quality of care, increase access for underserved communities, and enhance the experience of care for patients and health care professionals. Health care organizations can use enterprise risk management (ERM) principles to make informed decisions related to corporate social justice and improve performance.
