Main Line Health is committed to a pursuit of health equity in all aspects of care. Partly due to its recognition for launching the Diversity, Respect, Equity and Inclusion (DREI) Initiative, Main Line Health was selected, along with eight other health centers—diverse in size, geography and patient populations served—to participate in the inaugural Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s two-year initiative, titled “Pursuing Equity.”

The Pursuing Equity Initiative explicitly addresses institutional racism by identifying ways in which healthcare organizations can impact equity in areas such as employee wellness and social determinants of health, in addition to reducing clinical disparities at the point of care. The initiative aims to reduce inequities in health and healthcare access, treatment and outcomes by implementing comprehensive strategies to create and sustain equitable health systems.

Main Line Health adopted the Pursuing Equity Initiative’s five-pillar framework to further the work of our organization.
